 Re: Anyone else protective over their leg?

Hi Lauren,

So sorry to hear about your injury. You ask a great question. I have recovered from last injury from years ago, but broke the leg the first time over three decades ago. Yes, all the physical will get much better. But it is strange that since that first break I have never really liked physical contact with the leg...no pain involved. It just seems to be something psychological left over from the injury. And it is particular to the leg. Years ago I had a great physio who worked with me to get past the extreme dislike, almost fear, of contact. As I say, now it it's just dislike. As you are near in time to the break, things will take time, but all does get better and better. I suspect there will always be some memory and favouring of the leg. I've found there are certain 'triggers' that remind me of the the past. There are anniversaries or sometimes I can just notice something around me and have a 'broken leg deja vu'. No pain involved. The experience is more like a brief flashback or something like watching a short film.

Best wishes,
Matt
