Fola : I was only walking...
Diary entry posted Mon 2:26pm 22 July 2013

Just a week ago on the 14th i was walking on rocky unleveled ground when i lost my balance and twisted my leg on the way down. As a result i sustained two fractures. I mid diagonal fracture on my fibula and on the opposite side at the bottom a small fracture on my tibia. I was told I was going to have surgery of which I'm waiting i know it can only be left for a maximum of 7-10 days following the injury before the healing process commences and today being Monday is day 8. Im slightly worried. I will be getting in contact with the hospital to ensure that it is done by Wednesday. So far the pain can be horrible at times especially keeping it elevated for so long in one position so i tried to move it and wiggle my toes a lot (i currently have a backslab on - this is my second one since the injury ). Elevation does help with the pain as well as that i take codydramol for the pain and ibuprofen to aid the reduction of inflammation. I was nervous about the surgery but im glad others didn't have a bad experience. Although, i am worried about the sharp passions following the surgery during the healing process. A couple of days ago i did have sharp pains of which i believe was nerve entrapment since i have not had any since then. I hoping for a speedy recovery. Wish me luck. I'll keep you updated!
