Fiona : over the next few weeks
Diary entry posted Wed 5:06am 24 November 2010

I have been using a zimmer frame instead of crutches.... I'm telling you i was deadly on those crutches. I was going to end up with the other leg broken! The Zimmer frame was $20 a week to hire and $70 to buy so that was a no brainer!!! Its great ...really stable!
Also i figured that using the computer chair to zip around the house in is great!
At 5 weeks my cast came off (using that little angle grinder thing that isn't supposed to cut you but guess what IT CUT ME right on the ankle bone GRRRRR !x-ray showed no major improvement in the break...
He put me in the cam walker which is good, with some pwb. I don't know if this was the right thing to do or not but i suppose he wouldn't have done it if it wasn't. It has now been 5 weeks and 4 days! But all of a sudden my leg and mainly ankle is really hurting ... not sure why my ankle is hurting but is causing concern for me!
Don't know if this is normal or not ? The pain isn't from the cam walker it is inside in the bone etc

I'm bored out of my brain .... Husband wont take me to the shops for an excursion as its all "too hard" which is frustrating because laying around is all too hard for me ...
