Hi. My name is Jennifer, I'm new to the group. Two weeks ago I fell on some ice getting into my car and badly fractured my fibula and tibia. Two on the tibia, one of which going into the joint, then one on the fibula with some ligament tears, got screws and plates. I'm tired all the time but don't sleep well at night mostly morning, when I do I sleep 12 hrs. This cast is driving me nuts. Swells it's tights, not swelling it's loose but Dr. Says alittle loose is ok. It hurts, my big toe is numb sometimes, hard to bend but others are ok. Just frustrating, feels weird all the time. Can't do much and am off on short term disability. If I am up using the knee walker too much I get real nauseated. My wife's been amazing though. Just frustrating and hard for me to not do anything. No hiking, no errands, no nada cuz it's so hard to get in and out of my house. Any advice or similar?
