Hi Delia,
I too crushed my tibia to pieces and had to have a plate and 6 screws put in right below and over my knee. They put a bone graft in and blew out the pieces with a balloon to save the area. I was off my leg for 6 months with a walker, crutches and a machine that I laid on the sofa and it bent my leg to the degree where I could stand it. Everyday I put the machine on the sofa and let it do the work. The PT ppl lent it to me to use for the duration of my therapy. I had plenty of time for reflection and since I was born with a chaotic mind I did not have time to be depressed. Life is too short. You just take each thing as it comes along, make the best of it and move forward. I have done that all my life. I hope you have a support system, and if not, go out and find one. Looking forward to hearing from you. I am 63 years old.
