 Re: Hospital yesterday

Hey Harry, sorry you had to join this unfortunate club!

Iím in my early 30ís and suffered my first broken bone 6 weeks ago today. Broken fibula and tibia in left leg. I required surgery so now have a metal plate and 9 screws in my leg!

If it helps to reassure you I was exactly where you were. Itís a scary outlook, the pain, being uncomfortable, depending on people. It does get better I promise! Once I got that first backslab off I was so much more comfortable (once the cast change pain settled)

Iíve found that setting yourself little goals like next appointment, a morning out etc really helps to keep you focussed. Ask questions as you will have plenty.

Iím back at the hospital on Wednesday so hoping Iíll be going from a below the knee cast to a boot!

Good luck Witt your recovery!
