So IOhh broke my leg on valentines day.

I have never broken a bone before. I was walking down my stairs to my driveway and I guess when I had shoveled and salted I missed a stair.

My foot started to slip and I started to fall backwards, then my foot hit the dry pavement and stuck, which in turn basically folded my leg in half.

I am pretty well incapacitated. I was wondering if anyone had some ideas of a new hobby I could pick up while sitting on the couch 23 hours a day.

Ohh, I have copys of the xrays if anyone wants to see them. Pretty gruesome though.

Glad you made it through, it definitely gets better.
I hated the knee bender thing.

Just a quick update:

Its been 4 weeks since my surgery, the cast came off today and i am now in a walking boot(which i am still not allowed to put pressure on yet)

It still has to be elevated basically all the time, which sucks.

I am starting physical therapy next week.

Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel anyways.

ohh, and i havent taken any painkillers in 2 weeks, i know a few of you guys mentioned that so i figured i would throw that in there.

Do what the doctors PT people say.

I know a lot of people who did too much because it felt OK or too little because it hurt that wish they would have followed directions.

Update.

Been out of the walking boot for about 4 weeks now. Been going to physical therapy. Allowed to put full weight on my leg and walking around with one crutch as a makeshift cane. Feeling good.

On a side note its amazing how much muscle deteriorates when you dont use it. My calf is just a flab of nothingness.

Nice work. Do exactly the PT they recommend, no more and no less. Most people neglect it, a few try to come back too fast... neither is good. PT is important.
