 Back to the Couch...
Lena2017    9:58am Feb 23 2017

After sleeping on the couch for about a month, I tried sleeping in a regular bed for a couple of days since I was given the ok to do stairs with a crutch (50% WB). I slept ok on the first night and horribly on the second. I think my leg had too much movement and the knee was always hot and stiff. Sleeping on the couch makes me go to the washroom way more often -not sure why. Something to do with my position, but my leg felt much more secure and in place....Also, I find that while I can wiggle all my toes a few feel numb most of the time. Is that normal? Anyone else experience toe numbness with tib/fib fx with IM nail procedure? The knee has been numb since the beginning around the scar area. Thx.

Jan 2017- tib/fib fracture from fall
Jan 3- surgery IM nail, screws
Jan 18 -2-week follow-up- staples out NWB, PT
Feb 15 - 6-week follow-up- callous forming, 50% WB allowed, PT
April 5 - 13-week follow up- bone healing well, can stand bootless
