 Re: Went for a checkup - struggling with depression

Melissa, I wouldn't expect to see callus yet. Good alignment at this stage is good news, and it's great that you are getting physio. Yes, 10 weeks seems like forever but it WILL pass.

Increased risk of blood clots is standard when you have any limb immobilised - but it really is not that high. Are you on the injections to reduce the risk?

Depression sadly is usual and crying is normal. I cried a lot at that stage as well. I was depressed, angry, fatalistic (usually only briefly, alas) then back to depressed).

I understand about how much work it must be to leave the house - and the staring can make things even harder, psychologically. Do you have a few good friends you can encourage to visit?

Do vent here when you need to. We ARE listening and do understand. Hang in there!
