Re: Broken Heel

It was so nice to hear from you. So sorry about your car accident. But hearing that you are getting about on a boot and crutches is encouraging. I know I will need plenty of therapy and that this will be an extremely long process. Not like a broken leg or sprained ankle. I think some people just expect me to be better in 6 to 8 weeks and I know that will not be the case. Patience, is the word. Thanks for all your encouragement. It is good to vent. We girls need to do that every once in a while

Re: Broken Heel

You are right about my attitude. I think my pain medications are making me depressed as well. I have to accept what happened to me and then get on with it. Taking each day with a positive attitude and look forward to when I can do therapy is what I have to look forward to and be patient. I know I can't rush it. I have been a fairly healthy person and have never broken any bones before. I usually am the one taking care of everybody else. Being dependent on others is tough.

Re: Broken Heel

I can relate to you on that wendy..I have had some bad days where I have been very depressed..can't go out like I used to stuck inside all the time..It's hard for some people to understand what we are going through. I wish I could do things myself but I have to depend on people sometimes too and that can be tough at times. But soon we should have our lives back hehe hang in there and keep your head up girl.

Re: Broken Heel

I have a bilateral fracture (1 pinned) and after 10 weeks have been ok'd for FWB. I'm walking again with a limp and no pain meds, just a cane for longer walks.

Keep your chin up Wendy, there is light at the end of the tunnel! The satisfaction will be immense when you start seeing improved ROM, less pain and then weight bearing. Take pleasure from the small improvements and that should lift your spirits.
