 Re: Newbie: struggling with a broken leg and the cast itís been put in.

Hi Stephen,
I'm also from the Uk but now living in Australia.
Sorry to hear your on the beginning of this awful long journey.
I also fractured my Fibula, Tibia and have torn ligaments.
I had surgery and I'm now at week 8 and have cast removed in 2 days time.
I never mastered crutches very well, so I've used a wheelchair to help when cooking etc and push walker when I'm on my feet.
The shower chair as others have mentioned has been a godsend.
The swelling is normal and may last a few weeks yet and like you say....be prepared to elevate your leg for most of the time especially in the beginning.
This is where the boredom kicks in and overthinking starts.
But remember we are all in this together albeit at different stages.
