Hi Spencer, sympathies for your having joined the club.
Regarding boredom... Any chance of working from home? If not then I suggest you think of a couple of projects you can do sitting down - maybe a course you can do online plus something in the handicraft line, so you can switch between them.
Also ask the PT about what weight lifting you can do while seated?
No real suggestions re. sleeping. Make sure the leg is properly elevated so you're getting good venous return?
And you're going to have to be patient regarding weight bearing: you might be allowed to start partial weight bearing after say 3-4 weeks or it could be 6-8 weeks or more before your orthopaedic surgeon gives you clearance to put any weight on it - it will depend on the break, the fixation and surgeon preference. Please do NOT try to put weight on the leg before/more than you're given clearance to do - you'll only seriously risk a setback that will make the whole process take even longer...
