 Weight Bearing and Exhausted
Cathy H.    8:49pm May 17 2017

I have a right leg tibia plateau fracture. I am in week eight and have been 25% plus weight bearing for two weeks. All has been going very well considering. My x-rays show my leg has healed very well and I have not really had any pain other than a pinch feeling here and there at times for about 5 weeks now. What I am finding is that I am exhausted. I am dealing with headaches now and my back and hips are aching. When I am trying to do things at the counter like cut up vegetables my back is unhappy whether I stand or sit. I am doing my exercises. I find my leg is really swelling lately too with me standing or walking more I guess. Any advice or thoughts out there on the exhaustion, the headaches, and the swelling? Thanks everyone!
