Hi all .i had trimalleolar surgery early September and have been told that bones ( scewed and plated) are healed and i can weight bear.
I'm in an airboot on a Zimmer and in a week im sure that consultant will tell me it's fine to to take it off.
I've tried to wean myself out , once i.found a pair of Velcro trainers to fit my now altered shape foot..
Two steps and I froze ...the pain that shot up through my leg was awful.It felt as if I was walking on a bed of nails.
I do have a screw through heel bone so maybe related.
I could not walk..my son and husband have turned into drill sergeants .
" Come on...work through the pain..think of soldiers who lose legs..you've only broken yours!"
I know they mean well but I'm a terrified lump of jelly.
I am terrified about walking..
I'm 61 , 5ft not some superfit gym bunny .
I don't know how to get over this. I'm listening to self confidence hypnosis apps..
I keep telling myself thatt I can do it ..but I can't i imagine how I ever will.
