Monday, 14 days into broken fibula the foot screaming stopped. My muscles relaxed in the cast or... I felt like I lost muscle mass so that it's just lose enough that everything in there is comfortable. I was told that about 2-2 1/2 weeks there would be a lessening of pain/discomfort, I was thrilled to reach it, Monday was going great...
Then I fell crutching down the hall... landed on my knee, or bounced and slid because my whole knee is bruised and there are two rug burns!! Everything-knee to toe swelled!! It was so uncomfortable in the cast, I took Advil, the one thing I was told NOT to take. But it's the one thing that works... It's been a day and a half since I fell and I feel back to not swollen and uncomfortable.
Today I will get an in cast x-ray to see how it's going. I hope the fall Monday didn't do any damage, I had a mental breakdown over the weekend (crying and hating everyone-then wanting to trip and beat them with my crutch) I can't wait till this is over. I'm 2 weeks and 2 days in. A co worker who had knee surgery just posted on facebook that he limped the trash out for the first time in 4 months. I can not take that long. I will stab people!
