I broke my ankle in 3 places in GA on my way back from vacation. I was brought into an ER where an Otho Dr. tried "setting it". That felt beyond barbaric. He put a cast on, gave me a vial of oxycotin and there I layed in the back of my husband's SUV, in a painful trance all the way to Detroit. Twelve hours later I end up in the ER in Detroit, where the residents on staff again try to "set my ankle". They claim that it HAD to be done. The pain was completely insane. The next day I had surgery and was put in an outter metal frame or fixation, so that the tissue would be better able to handle surgery. The week after, the surgery includes titanium brakets, plates and 15 screws. That was 3/16. The medications were horrible. I was halucinating, had paranoia and still felt pain. I detoxed 2 days after surgery and started doing what I practiced for 20 years ..yogic breathing, visualization, channting and meditation. It SAVED my life, still does. The nurses HATED me chanting and kept try to push drugs. Now that I can take off "the boot" for short periods of time, I EARTH....go out side and put skin to Earth. There is lots of evidence for the effectiveness of this but trust me, it's amazing done with consistancy and continuity. I was told I should be able to bear weight May 1. That would be about 6 after surgery. I'm hopeful and grateful for this discussion. Peace
