 Re: Broke my fibula and had another fall during the night.

Hi Marianne,

Sorry to hear about your injury- the beginning can be so difficult.
I fell on my broken leg the first week home from the hospital and it was nerve wracking. I have internal hardware, so it takes a lot more to displace the bones, but I still went to the hospital for an x-ray as I couldn't get it off my mind. I recommend going for another x-ray, especially as you're feeling increased pain. I know it's a chore to haul yourself there and queue, but it's worth the mental relief. And hopefully it will be all for naught and you'll be home quickly.
Feeling like a burden is no fun, but very, verrry normal. It's tough to not be able to care for yourself fully. However, it's all temporary, so sending you healing thoughts!
