 Discharged From Fracture Clinic
TillyDog    10:36am Feb 11 2018

I had my latest follow up appointment a few days ago and the surgeon discharge me from fracture clinic. You would think I would be happy about this but its been almost 4 months since I broke my ankle but I feel a bit vulnerable about this decision. He did leave it open in that he said if I have any problems to get in contact with them so that's a bit reassuring I guess.

I am now walking with one crutch and for some parts of the day none, but I still have a really bad limp which physio is working with me on.

I mentioned that I have numbess on my foot when I touch it and along where my scar is on my leg and he said sometimes the metal plate can sit near a nerve and that can cause the numbness?

When did others get discharged and did it make you feel slightly vulnerable?
