 Re: I BROKE MY LEG, NOT MY SPIRIT

Hi Edzen,

Your broken leg is "sort of" similar to mine. How did you break your leg?
I also broke the tibia (spiral fracture) and fibula (complete break) both real close to my ankle. My tibia break travels about 1/3 up my leg. No surgery needed because my bones are still aligned good and in good position to heal; except they aren't yet. But I broke my right leg not my left. Which means no driving for me... I missed a step going down my deck steps. So my leg thought it was hitting the next step when in fact it was still 16 inches to the ground. So stupid really but that is way in the past at this point of this journey.

How did you survive this? I'm in my second recast. Pure torture. When did you start to still any signs of healing?
How did you handle seeing your leg after each recast? I'm a complete wreck but maybe that's just me?

Needing some encouragement.
Annette
