I'm 2 and a half weeks post 2nd surgery on a trimalleolar fracture and a shattered tibia and fibula. I had my 1st surgery 4 weeks ago which wasn't a success.
Anyhow I had my staples out yesterday, and was told I only had to have my cast on another 4 weeks rather than another 6 weeks. I have to get my cast changed weekly though because my long scar is still weeping.
I'd just like to say thank you to this forum for helping me out because 2 weeks ago there was 2 days where I thought I couldn't go and some members of this forum said it was natural to feel like that. I'm feeling a lot more positive and have began putting a positive slant on not so good days.
My next goal in sight is getting my cast off and beginning to weight bare I've read a lot of comments saying this is very uncomfortable. Another thing is I am keeping the metal work in and a lot of you are getting it taken out is this normal?
