 One year later, we do get better
Travis Guss (12.144.221.---)   1:09pm Jan 4 2020

Hi everyone! haven't been on this site for awhile, I actually miss it. It was so helpful for my healing from my broken tibia.

Update: tomorrow 1/5/20 will be one year since my tibia rod placement surgery.
I broke my leg (tibia and fibula) on 1/1/19 on a hike.

It took a long time to get back to normal. I do have a scar in two places on my leg. I did have arthritis for awhile in both legs after all of that, but haven't had an occurrence of it for awhile now.

On 1/1/20 I went and did the exact same hike where I broke my leg originally. And it was amazing, cathartic and so glad that I did.

It helped with closure on the whole leg break incident.

I've also been working out even more now than I used to. I've ridden the stationary bike at the gym more than ever had before but its great. I also have been jumping rope.

Its a crazy time with a broken limb, have the utmost empathy now for those going through it. But did want to write, it gets better! Last year thought was the end of the world, now I'm back to almost normal. And only have the memories of that time.

I do still praise physical therapists and my ortho surgeon for doing a great job. Also praise this site. I've referred people to it, since our commonalities definitely unique.

Anyways, yea did just want to wish you all a Happy New Year and hope that your healing with your leg is going good !
