 Re: fracture healing question
Embonious    11:10am Jan 27 2019

Hi Matt,
Thanks a lot for your response and experience. In one sense I'm glad to have internal fixation because at least I can walk sooner than with casts, but on the other hand it's so invasive.
I'm hoping I am back to more normal life over the next few months, but I do think it's still gonna take some time. At times this feels a touch overwhelming, but it helps to remember what it was like in the beginning and see how far I've come anyway! That and seeing gains in muscle and fitness- I gained about 3 pounds of muscle in the past month, which I assume is primarily in my atrophied thigh, as I'm not exactly pushing the rest of my body with tough workouts yet.
Hope you're doing well and feeling fit!

19 Sept 2018- released from hospital, no cast, NWB
22 Oct 2018- 30% PWB, started physio
04 Dec 2018- working towards 100% WB indoors
