 Advice needed on newly broken leg
James R    8:11am Jan 23 2018

Hi everyone. Iíve spent most of today Googling advice for broken legs and came across this site. It looks like a fantastic resource! 2 day ago on Sunday evening my girlfriend ChloŽ had an extremely unfortunate accident on her bicycle that resulted in her badly breaking her right leg. She is still in hospital at the moment and recovering from the shock and trauma of everything she has been through. It has been a nightmare 48 hours if Iím honest. ChloŽ had an operation today to try and mend her breaks, and is still asleep under general aesthetic and waiting to come around. Hopefully there will be good news to follow.

While the doctors and nurses treating ChloŽ have been great, Iím still feeling at a real loss at what to expect once she is discharged from hospital and how best to help her. We live together, so I am going to be the main person looking after her through this, and I really want to make sure I do the best job I can for her, helping her recover as quickly and as painlessly as possible. I have been given a booklet on broken legs and having a leg in a cast - which has been useful to a point - but I was wondering if anyone here could offer some pointers or advice for someone getting through a bad injury like this? Perhaps something the nurses might not think of, but have been of help to people in the past? Hope this makes sense, and thanks in advance.
