Anyone else had a broken ankle??
Just wondering if anyone else has had a broken ankle, I would love to hear from you.
I am 58 and this is the first broken bone I have ever had and I did a good job! I missed 2 steps Oct. 8th. and broke my ankle and a bone in my leg. I had surgery Oct. 10th. and have screws and a steel plate in my right ankle. I chipped bones in the left foot too.
I was on antiobotics for 2 months because I got a flesh eating infection. My incesion just healed up the first of Dec.
I saw my doctor the last of Jan. and don't have to see him unless I have problems.
I am doing my own therapy since we don't have insurance and I have gotten us far enough in debt from just the surgery!
I am walking now with a cane. By bed time my ankle is throbbing and swollen up. I do a step exercise and roll my foot around and walk as much as I can. Now with the cold weather the steel plate hurts real bad!Just wondering if anyone else has anything to share or to give me hope that I will walk again without pain.
Thanks for your input.
