your story reminds me quite a bit of my own so I was hoping you could give me some insight.
I'm a 22 year old female and a graduate student t in arizona and was hit by a car as I was crossing the street in November 2012. I don't have any memory of it beside what I've been told. I ended up breaking my left tib and fib and they placed an im rod through the tibia with no cast. I also had a platue fracture in my right tibia so they did surgery to fix some of the tendons and ligaments.
it's been over three months now and I've gone from a wheelchair to a walker to crutches and I'm now using a cane. I can't believe how much I still need the pain meds right now and that certain exercises or just walking can hurt so much.
how long did it take for your pain levels to lessen and are you still having a lot of issues?
