So it's been just about 4 months since I had the surgery to repair my broken tib/fib. Over a week ago I was able to finally not use my boot and encouraged to walk without a crutch per the PT. It is ok for a few minutes but then I am so sore. I have decided to stick with the one crutch as at least I will be able to get around.
My question is about the recovery. I am still limping a lot and very sore. Also, still tired a lot of the time. All normal, right? But it is starting to get old. I want to not rely on my family so much but everything I do is exhausting, cooking, picking up etc. Thoughts? Support?
Just venting I guess
