 Re: Very Tired of This

Elaine, you can cry and complain as much as you need to! You are doing really good for as close after your surgery that you are. Although I do think you pushed it a little far with the vacuuming! Healing from a broken leg and surgery takes a lot of time and energy. And it's very boring and frustrating.

I am now one year out from my fall at the end of Feb, and tomorrow is my one year anniversary date of my surgery. I remember waiting in pre-op and telling myself, a year from now I am going to a St. Patrick's Day happy hour - and I will be! I've been having a lot of "one year ago today I was... getting an MRI, getting a surgery consult, whatever" and when I look back I am amazed at how far I've come. The only trouble I have now is a little bit going up and down stairs.

I do remember getting depressed after I was done with formal PT and back to a normal schedule, because I thought my leg would have felt better than it did. So try not to set your expectations too high and be gentle with yourself!
