I broke my ankle 7 months ago, I had to get 14 screws and two plates put in. I was back on the ship within 4 months after the break. I have been going to physical therapy once a week, since I ve been able to start applying pressure. Since I ve been back my condition has gotten worse, they damaged my nerves during the surgery and the swelling has increased. I work 12 hours a day in engineering on the ship, I can barley walk at the end of the day, and have a limp most of the time, but ships medical insist that I ll be back to normal in no time, these are also the same people who when I initially broke it thought I had only sprained it and made me walk to medical. My physical therapists keep telling me to get off the ship before I damage it more, and that it s not going to heal while I m working the way I am. At this point I don t know what to do, I know they are lying to me but I don t have anywhere to turn. Seems like some kind of torture. Wondering what I should, or anything that will help out this situation.
