Dislocation, ORIF of tib/fib fractures in Nov 2017. Finally returned to work 4 weeks ago. Nothing in my life (not even my children) has ever required so much patience and at the same time been so frustrating. For anyone who may be just starting this journey, first of all prayers to you. Second, get ready to have to exercise extreme patience. For anyone who is able to tolerate looking at it, ask your doc to show you your xrays. I have been an ortho nurse for 12 years but never understood just how complex the ankle is. My ortho docs at work say it is one of the most difficult joints to heal because the entire weight of the body is on it. Give your body time, take it slow and easy, and be patient.
