I met with an accident last year Nov 2016. My ankle fracture was at my fibula and tibia area it was operated with a plate and 9 screws. Initially i did not feel anything as there was casting. After 3 weeks i had my first appt stitiches and casting were removed and my doctor told me to rest with no weight bearing till the next appt. During this period of time i was devastated
seeing my ankle swollen and skin peeling off. It was so sore and i hardly walked. On my 2nd appt x-ray was taken and thank god my bone was recovered, hence doctor mentioned that i can put full weight bearing and walk. That was a shock to me. During this period my physio was not much as my ankle was too swollen. I became worried of how i am going to walk with the walking frame. When i got home i tried and i could not feel anything coz my ankle was swollen. i could walk but not stably. After 2 weeks my better leg started giving me trouble i could not walk was too painful. i could only stand at one place for less then 10 mins. i was limping throughout. I became even disapoointed. My operated area felt like burning sensation. and it was so stiff that even i did my reflexes it hurt me badly. I cried in silence but i wanted to walk badly. Now its like 3 months and the improvements is so slim and i am still sitting on the wheelchair to move around. When will i be able to walk even keeps recurring in my mind as per normal. Anyone there going thru the same situation?
