 Anyone else protective over their leg?
Lauren Mikles    8:38pm Jan 18 2018

Itís been 6 months since my spiral tib/fib fracture with IM nail and screws. Iím much better and completely healed, but my knee and ankle still feel like foreign bodies. I expect that will be the norm for a year or two and am finally at peace with that fact. But I find myself feeling overprotective of my leg. Like, if the grass is wet, I wonít walk in it bc I donít want to risk falling. And thatís where Iím supposed to park at work since we are a small company. Or like when Iím throwing the ball for my cat and it rolls into a tight spot behind the chair. I know that I could get it, but I donít feel comfortable twisting my body and stepping over things. Or when I see a muddy hill on a jobsite (I work at a construction company) I will avoid it even though Iím completely capable. I have completely embraced physical therapy. I love it and am going well beyond the time period that my doctor required. Itís called the wellness program. Idk does anybody else just feel super protective and hyper aware of their broken extremity for no good reason? Even when you know youíre not in danger?
