 It gets better!
dcb    2:18pm Jun 6 2017

Status update: just under two years since I broke my ankle - fractured fibula. April 2016 I stress-fractured my pelvis during the London marathon, secondary to the ankle (hadn't regained full ankle flexibility and was running a lot of miles).

On Sunday I ran Comrades - a 54-mile, very hilly ultra-marathon from Durban to Pietermaritzburg in South Africa.

So for those of you who were running or whatever before your accidents: hang in there. Do the physio exercises. It can improve a lot, given time!

Fibula Fx lat. malleolus Weber B 12 June 2015
ORIF plate 18 June. Cast problems (allodynia) so boot from 25th but NWB.
25 July start PWB in boot, 7 Aug PWB without boot. 14th Aug few steps FWB.
9 Sept 10-steps jog 25 Sept: PT says go run!
