Comment : welcome to the tib/fib club
Posted by Becky_B on Mon 7:11am 4 October 2004

Welcome Alison - I'm three months into my tib/fib break and still NWB on crutches. To answer some of your questions, sleeping with a pillow in between my legs helped the most with sleeping. Don't be surprised when the skin on your toes gets dry and starts to peel off. Its kind of disgusting but you get used to it. I can only imagine what this cast is going to smell like when it comes off. I can also see a difference in my legs now, the fat that used to be on the thigh on the broken leg just swings now, lol, no muscle at all. However, the good leg is really muscley from standing on one leg. The only other advise is just to relax and take it easy. There's not much you can really do, but except that you are going to be down for the count for a while. One good thing when you start to venture out, most of the bigger stores have these wonderful electric carts for shopping! Zooming around the stores is the only way to go, and it relieves some of the boredom! If you have any other questions or if I can help, let me know. Thanks and happy healing
