 Re: jogging and pilon fractures

Hi Chris,
Again, so great to hear about your progress. I hope the leg is feeling better and better with the exercise. As it feels better, you'll no doubt just want to do more and more (that was the case with me).
Your remark about standing up, that caused some memories to rush back. Yes, I can relate, though the leg should be able to bear weight (?). And I'm also reminded about proper gait. A fracture can change the mechanics of a leg, so do be careful with the running gait. When I first broke the leg back in the 80s, I found certain things changed permanently. Whenever I ran, I would always stop on the leg that wasn't injured, and that's still the case. From that first time (to now), I never got over not liking physical contact with the leg. With contact sports, I remember silent panic attacks when the left leg took a tackle..Yes, your observation brought back memories.

Best wishes,
Matt
