Three days ago I fell from a ladder and broke my left Fibula at the top near my knee.
The Fibula is the slim bone that runs from the top of the left calf to the ankle.
I am in much pain.
Ouch! You poor girl! I hope you have someone at home to pamper & take care of you!!! Rest & get better.
Hope you feel better soon! Just think, more time hubbin'! :-)
Yes. it does suck.Big cast and I can't scratch my leg very wll.
The pain is intense too.
A friend did the same thing. Snapped his led in half and had to have a steel rod hammered through the marrow with screws in his ankle and just under his knee. Moths later the screw caused an infection and he had to have surgery. I hope you heal well and quickly.
Sorry to hear your Hod is compromised. Too much routine maybe. Get well!
Sorry to hear that Deborah.
Hopefully, you've been given great things to help with the pain.
Positive thoughts on speed healing.
Thank you Misha, I AM a poor girl.
I bet you give big, warm hugs.
I would, but I am sorta cautious about your hubby
I'm sorry, Deborah. I've never had that misfortune, though I did break an arm as a child. I sure hope yours heals as well as my arm did, and that the hurt goes away soon for you.
Oh Deborah! Been there with a tibia. Plaster above the knee for 7 months. I was young like you and healed great!
My loving wife and kids (young at the time) spoilt me wonderfully.
I found good friends, family and conversation to work best as a pain killer. I didn't take pain killers either. I guess as a nurse you know they are usually nasty things!
I know it is all about time passing, so I wish you a normal recovery!
Big warm hugs from me and a big sloppy kiss from the twins!
Put that big brain of yours to work on reducing the pain a bit!
I started my most successful business with my left leg in plaster! Good stuff happens in strange ways sometimes if ya keep smilin!
Bugger.. I've heard the Ladder of Success is like that!
Sometimes you kick - sometimes you break your kicker!
I hope you sent the ladder away for adoption!
Sorry to hear about your accident.
But.. what's really 6 weeks in an itchy cast?
Wow... Now that you have a break, you can rest and can be waited on Hand and Foot (and Cast)

I'm sorry that you had a mishap and I'm sure the pain is serious. I once put a spike nearly through my foot and it was also quite painful. The lady next door told me to apply some scotch whiskey to the wound. She even brought the scotch.
After treating the wound topically for a few days -- and seeing no results -- I decided that the medication might work better if taken internally. It did turn out to be much more effective that way.
Glad it wasn't more serious...heal quickly.
Deborah!!!! No....I can't believe you broke your leg. I'm so sorry. Just keep moving as much as possible. I'm sending well wishes your way.
Deborah, just to lighten things up, when I rang my brother-inlaw to tell him I had broken my leg, his reply was
"I hope it wasn't a back leg!"
Sorry to hear about your broken leg Deborah. Rest up and I hope you get better real soon. Have the family wait on you which I am sure they are doing.
Get well wishes for you and keep writing those excellent Hubs.
Back leg? I will have to think on this.
Yikes! As someone who is currently recovering from a broken leg (I broke my fibula in April), I know EXACTLY what you're going through. Don't be afraid to ask for help. I don't like asking for it either, but well, you'll need it. You'll be surprised by how quickly you adjust. I was unable to use crutches, so I've been in a wheelchair, but I've gotten very good at lifting myself in and out of things.
I know it probably seems like a nightmare now, but I finally got back up on my feet two days ago. It felt really weird, but didn't hurt too much. You will feel better and you WILL walk again. Sending my best and healing vibes.
P.S. Use this time to write a lot of hubs -- I've written about 50 in the past couple of months!
Do you have an office chair with wheels? This is what I've been using to get around the apt. and then I use a wheelchair outside. But I like the office chair becuause it's less bulky for indoors and I can get around by myself and clean and almost feel normal.

I'm sorry to bother everyone here, but I need to vent to someone...On April 1, I fell off the bus while exiting and hurt my leg. Turns out, I sprained my ankle, tore a bunch of ligaments and broke my fibula in two places. I was taken to the emergency room and they wrapped it in a bandage, but...

I told that personthey could go...

I have had quite a visitation from those who consider themselves atheists or skeptics in a previous forum on Christianity meant for Christians. Those of you who are non-religious, atheistic, skeptics, agnostics and all else that the world may call you, I would like you to share with us how you have...
