Well, it's been almost exactly a year since I broke my tibia, fibula, and ankle. I'm happy to report that I have recovered quite well. I'm walking and hiking with no perceptible limp, and have essentially no ankle swelling. My knee is a little stiff, and I can feel it more when stepping down (as when hiking downhill), but it's bearable. All my hardware is still in place and I have no plans to remove the hardware.
Two weeks after my accident:
One year later:
That scar on the inside of my leg is where the bones were sticking out. Ick!!
It makes me queasy to think about that.
So, how is everyone else in broken ankle/broken leg land? Post up your updates and let us know how you are doing!
