6/25/09 I had a riding accident. To make a long story short my saddle slid to the side while my horse took off in the opposite direction and I attempted to land on my feet, really stupid idea. I broke my tibia and fibula just above the ankle joint. I have four screws and a plate in my leg. I'm still having pain on the top and through the arch of my foot. I have this painful itch from where my incision starts through my ankle and foot. Now my ankle is starting to give out and occasionally go numb. I've done physical therapy and after 8 months it's not helping me. I went to the dr several times, and I keep getting the same answer, [I]PHYSICAL THERAPY[/I]. It doesn't seem to help, it's getting worse. I'm really nervous about numbness and my ankle giving out and locking.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read this. Any suggestions are welcome!
