I am on my 3rd week of recovery from a compound/open tib/fib fracture after being hit by a car in a crosswalk. I have a rod along my fibula with two scews in top and two in the bottom. Tibia was left alone, stablized enough by the rod. I have no cast/boot due to the internal stabilization. I came home after 4 days in hospital.
Things have been stabilizing, emotionally and physically, but for the past week or so I've been feeling woozy. Last night I woke up feeling like I might pass out. I am on the blood thinner fraxiparine, injected subcutaneously into my belly each night.
We called the hopsital and were told that if it happens again, to come immediately, but otherwise wait and check in with my doc. The anxiety is really bothering me, I am tired of having additional symptoms crop up besides the broken bones!
I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this symptom before.
