 Re: The hardest part of have a broken leg
SMM    1:28pm Jan 6 2020

Hi Bruno,

I am so sorry to hear about your injury. How are you feeling today? I think you raise an important issue with fear. I have recovered from my most recent break of some years ago, but still stop in occasionally. My first break was decades ago and was serious. I can recall fear. I can also recall that the fear changes, if that makes sense. At first I was afraid I would lose my leg. When I understood that was not going to happen, I was became afraid of never being able to return to sports. And for years after that, I was afraid of rebreaking my leg. I somehow think that each of those fears serves a purpose. They do remind us of our limitations. But in time, they do fade and the body recovers. You'll never forget the injury; I clearly remember even details of my first break. But the fears eventually subside. In my case, the fear of reinjury always lingered (maybe more as a concern as the years went on), but actually really faded when I did rebreak the leg. Raising this issue of fears, I think, is important for coping and recovery.

Best wishes,
Matt
