 Re: One year later, we do get better

Travis! This is the most wonderful thing to hear. Iím so happy for you to have accomplished such a huge mike stone of completing that hike.

Iím 13 weeks in since I fell off my horse and broke my tib/fib. I had the same surgery as you. IM nail/rod to the tibia with 3 screws. And fibula realigned. No cast, just a boot. No weight bearing 6 weeks then began physio therapy and gradually weight bearing.

I just had my 12 week X-ray last week and my tib is healing amazing. My fibula however is still not lined up (knitted together) but is getting there. Iím allowed to come off crutches and out of my boot now and can actually full on walk! Was allowed to start weight training back at the gym on top of my cycling and that was a great feeling. Iím a very active person and live for the gym and outdoors. Managed to do light deadlifts, squats and leg press.

I have to wait another 3 weeks to see how the fibula is getting along healing wise. If it hasnít bonded together by then I will be having surgery. Itís not causing me pain just a bit of discomfort if I over do it.

My goal is to be riding again soon and to be running by the end of the year and hit back my 105kg deadlift. From what Iíve heard and spoken to the surgeons and my physio about itís achievable!

Thanks again for your positive outcome and for just being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It can be a dark place those first few months!! Physio is the key to everything and pushing through some of that pain :)
