I broke my ankle 3 weeks ago and got put into a proper cast 2 weeks ago. 4 more weeks to go! Normally quite an active person, (I broke it running), it is a real challenge physically and mentally. I was wondering if there are any others out there in the same situation and how you are managing? I am trying my utmost to stay positive and have a supportive partner, but it is hard sometimes. I feel that none of my friends really understand....and all have busy lives of their own.
I must say that I had no idea how hard it is to walk with crutches! watching others it always looked so easy. At the fracture clinic young people seeemed to have no trouble, but I am 60 and it is so exhausting. What do others find?
