I'm new to this housebound stuff. Not taking to it all that well.
Joined a hiking group a few months ago and even though I knew I should have avoided the last one, I thought a hiking pole would save me. Nope.
We were on the Dana Point rocks and my foot slipped. Tried to break my fall with my other foot and fell.
Woke the next morning and knew I didn't just twist it and somehow got myself to the ER. Long story short, I now have a broken/fractured left ankle and sprained right foot. I have a cast & use a walker but am not able to use crutches yet since I cannot put total weight on my sprained foot.
But now I wonder how much damage am I really doing if I go out for a few hours every few days even though I'm not supposed to put any weight on it? I do use my walker, and walk slow. Is this okay? Did/do the rest of you stay off your feet the entire 6 weeks???
Thanks for any input. My heart goes out to you all...!!
