 Re: Vacation after Broken Leg?
Travis Guss    7:31am May 28 2019

Hi Marina, I broke my tibia and fibula the day before my vacation on January 1. I had no idea the extent that this break would have on my life (back then). I told the emergency that I was going to go on my trip and if I could have the surgery when I got back. I was so new ;) Dr said definitely not ok to fly and had to cancel my vacation. Surgery was January 5, I took the postponed vacation on April 29, so almost 5 months later. I'm hoping for you that by October you'll be in great shape to go on the vacation. PT suggested compression sock, dr suggested aspirin pre-flight. I also brought my walking stick. Also made sure to get a handicap seat on the plane, the system is set to really help us with canes and crutches and such. And I thought there'd be more pain but there actually wasn't. My PT said wow that vacation provided some noticeable improvement, when I returned. I definitely followed all directions, walked a lot and it turned out fine. You're lucky since October is still awhile away so you have time to recover more. Have fun in October, sounds like a fun trip.
