I fractured my tibia spirally in January 2015 and took a long long time to recover. Last week I did my first really long walk since my break, on quite uneven ground and up and down hills. I felt a tremendous sense of achievement doing this and want to encourage you all. I know how bleak and despairing you can feel when you are going through rehab but do keep focussing on the light at the end of a very very dark tunnel! Good luck all.
