 Hit by a car - broken tibia and fibula :(
Julie M.    11:37am May 14 2018

Hi I'm new here. Last Wednesday I was out shopping and had my car parallel parked along a relatively busy street. I was standing by my trunk when a car hit my leg and badly broke it.

I had surgery that night; they put rods and pins in both my tibia and fibula. The surgeon informed me that my leg was one of the mist broken legs he's operates on in a long time. After spending some time in the hosptial, I finally got home this afternoon. Still in tons of pain.

My leg right now is in this removable wrap brace combination thing. I'm scheduled for a second surgery, mostly focused on my ankle, this Friday. So next week I'm going to get a hard full leg cast put on. They told me I'll probably be in a full cast for about 10 weeks before I get a below the knee walking cast.

It's hard right now. I've never been through anything like this. Any tips or encouragement will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
