 Re: Cast Anxiety

Hi Bob,

When I broke my left leg, I had a meltdown on week five, which was right after my second surgery.

I just didnít think I could take anymore non weight bearing time. People talked about it, it wasnít that uncommon.

This time when I broke my right leg, I was given a muscle relaxant and I took it hoping it would help keep me calm. I had three months of not putting any weight on my broken leg. No driving, not being able to work. Itís scary.

You have to find a really good distraction for you. I read a lot of books and watched a lot of movies.

I also think you should call your doctor and let him know what is going on.

Keep posting here any hopefully youíll get helpful suggestions.

Aug 31 slipped on water from dog bowl.
Sep 1 surgery ó one plate, seven screws plus syndesmotic screw.
No weight bearing for 12 weeks
