 What's "normal" for 4 months?
Caryn    8:20am Jul 4 2017

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

March 15 Fell and broke Tibia and Fibula 3 breaks
March 16 Surgery- 1 nail and 2 screws, casted
March 21 Back to ER cast too tight, replaced
March 29 2 week check. Booted NWB still using walker
April12th 4 week check. Still NWB walker
