 A big setback
Nikki Blake    12:46pm Aug 8 2017

Well, long story short I am back in a cast, Totally NWB. Same leg as before.
Got out of the car and didn't spot a hole that was hidden by long grass. Put my foot down it, twisted my foot and ankle over and fell heavily. I have refractured two metatarsals, my ankle, navicular bone and got a 60% Achilles rupture. Have really screwed my ankle and foot up.
Currently in hospital in backslab cast, not allowed to touch my foot on the floor at all. The orthopaedic surgeon has said I have "compromised the structure of my foot" which is scary.
I feel stupid, embarrassed and very depressed indeed today. Can't face seeing anybody. In lot of pain.
I am so sorry for being so miserable and down. It's so isolating.

10 Oct2016 fx 3rd and 4th metatarsals, fx fib. Aircast, 21 Nov 2016: back to hospital following a fall. Fx fib still. Spiral fx tib. LLC 25 Nov realign fx tib/fib re fx 3&4 metatarsal
