I broke my ankle Sept. 25. Had a plate and 3 screws installed Oct. 8th. I'm looking forward to a lace up boot and starting to bear some weight this Thursday. I thought it would never come. I feel like I get "a little better" everyday. At night my ankle is mildly swollen and I have lots of weird pains and sensations. My ankle is stiff. My foot turns purple while it is hanging down. I think this will go away once I can bear weight. This has been the hardest thing I've ever done. It has been hard on my husband as well and it adds to my guilt he has to do so much. I must be getting better because the lack of housekeeping at my house is starting to bug me. I'm wishing everyone a speedy recovery and lots of patience. I'd love to hear your stories and how you are doing.
