Anyone ever broken a leg?
I fractured my tibia and fibula in one of those stupid 5mph falls from the bike November 10th. Clever, I know. I had an internal fixation the day after with the cast removed 4 weeks ago. I have been to the hospital today (20th Jan) and given the green light to start to weight bear and use the turbo with light gears.
I'm waiting for a physio appointment to come through which I am expecting to be soonish as everything has been from the hospital concerned so far (Royal Derby = fantastic service) , but until I get to see the physio I am a bit stuck in that I don't know how to walk!
Maybe that's an exaggeration, I can remember how to walk but I'm not sure how to get started again gradually increasing the weight on the foot, and that's in addition to the psychological fear of the leg crumbling beneath me!
Not sure if I'm explaining it too well but I'm guessing that anyone who has been through it will know what I am on about, so any suggestions anyone??
