I was walking down the stairs at 6pm and my dog came running down behind me, he ran between my legs and rammed into my left leg (right behind the knee), causing my knee to buckle, and down I went. I landed with all my weight on my left leg causing the tibia and fibula to break. I definitely knew it was broken when I could see the tibia poking out of my skin, eek, so gross!! XP Iím amazed that I not only broke the tibia, but broke it into multiple fragments (comminuted break)!
Anyway I had to get an ambulance to come and take me to the ER because I was stuck in the middle of my stairs landing, and then from there I got admitted into the hospital for my IM Rod surgery.
