 Really scared and shocked about my broke leg
Larissa S    9:29pm May 16 2017

The 5th of May I was celebrating my freshman college year being over. I was on a 4-wheeler that flipped. I ended up shattering my tibia and fracturing my fibula and femur in multiple places all on my left leg. So after 10 days in the hospital with my leg in traction I came home Sunday. Currently I'm in a very long and difficult fell length fiberglass cast from the end of my foot to the top of my thigh. I'm going to have to wear a full cast for 12-16 weeks and a below the knee walking cast for 6-8 weeks after that so best case scenario nearly 5 months casted. It literally freaking sucks so much I can't imagine how I'll make it! The worst part is that they told me it could be a life altering injury. I may never be able to dance or run again things than I greatly enjoy. Furthermore, I may walk with a limp and have to use a cane or walker for the rest of my life I'm in shock. Do you think that will happen? Has anybody here had similar injuries? If so, how did you recover?
