 Re: Iím the new guy, broken Talus/shattered Malleolus
Signe    6:36pm Jan 20 2018

Welcome to the community! Sorry you had to join. I also had a fractured talus- just split in two pieces though. Itís not an easy break and itís a long recovery, being the weight bearing bone of the ankle. Iím a teacher and on my feet all day, I have to make sure to sit and put my foot up during the day. I still have days where I ďover do itĒ and am in a good bit of pain by the end of the day. Itís my new normal, and I just have to deal with it. I have to be more careful and thoughtful in my day to day life.

I know that wasnít a sunny response, but itís realistic. Thereís not many talus fractures on here, so I wanted to give you my experience.

Best wishes on your recovery.
