thanks for the wishes. No, my story-recovery is not that terrible, I agree. Could have been much worst. This site is realy cool - provides with lots of helpfull information and meet some nice guys with broken legs... Share your stories and pain...
Having a broken leg is not cool - have to say something to your kids I guess. Wish you don't ever break a limb - especially a leg.
Compartment syndrome is when the muscle compartments are swollen because of vascular or nerve injury. More common with large bones of the extremities - femur and tib/fib. There is a nice broken leg-related glossary (also featured in mybrokenleg.com): http://members.shaw.ca/mylesclough/ptinfo/glossary.htm
Thanks for stopping by - have fun..
