 Re: Worried about my good leg - and the rest of me!

Everything is thrown out of balance when you break a leg and have a cast. One thing I found very helpful was a product to attach to the shoe on the foot of my good leg to make walking more even once I got to that stage. Don't know if I am allowed to mention the brand name but if you google shoe attachment after broken leg that should get you to the product. I had to hop everywhere using a frame for support for the first 6 weeks and my back, good leg and wrists were soon objecting painfully to the extra stresses put on them. Good luck.

20 weeks with broken tib /fib! Slow healing. Casts (5)
Week 26 Tibia healed 50% aircast
Week 33 Tibia 95% healed so boot outdoors and cane no boot indoors
Wk 36 Start PT
Week 39 Ditch boot.
Wk 43 Driving and normal trainers
Wk 46 Discharged
