Injury was July 13th, ORIF fracture of the fibula, dislocated ankle and torn ligaments in my left ankle.
Just had the third surgery yesterday (ugh) to have the two longest screws out, the other six and the plate will remain in my leg.
Up to this point, I had only been 20lbs weight bearing, but got the go ahead yesterday to weight bear as tolerated with a crutch or walker, which is awesome.
I'm a bit sore today, but peanuts compared to what I've already endured and the stitches come out in two weeks.
So, finally feel like I'm making good progress. Only had one physio appt. so far but my ankle is loosening up and we're getting there.
Just wanted to say how grateful I am for everyone on this site. You have all been so kind to share your wisdom, your encouragement and many have made a point to check up on the other people still struggling...that is amazing, and I thank you all, what a wonderful thing.
Hope you all do your best to stay positive, I know it's hard at times, but with a little perseverance and patience, we will be up dancing before we know it.
Take care everyone, Cheers!!
