Its been 6 weeks and 2 days since my left broken fibula, still non weight. I have been complaining of pain, like metal pushing through my skin, called the office several times, no call back. So yesterday I go to my doctor and tell her, I then go and get a x-ray! The doctor comes in and says the screws in the rods going across my L ankle were coming out, but the plate and the other screws are fine, she then says I cant have surgery immediately, I have to wait another 6 weeks come back and see her for another xray then schedule surgery!?!? And then discharges me, still NWB, no medication. Told me to take ibuphrofen 800 and tylenol 650, I said I already take this over 4,000 mg a day and it still hurts!!! I got no prescriptions. And she never dicussed my other medications. The doctor said that this 2nd surgery of the rods and screws will not effect my progress, but in my opinion they have already stopped my progress. The surgeon said 10 weeks until i walk.... And now all this, Im depressed, home alone everyday, my life revolved around my job which I cant do because i work in a kitchen. Now I am tempted to go back to work because I think I could walk with a cane but Im scared to make things worse! My husband is stressed to the point of leaving, were struggling and I feel hopeless because Im just crap right now. Any advice please dont hesitate because Im lost right now I just want my foot back along with my life.... Ty
