well somehow I have made it to 6 weeks, oh joy!!!!
i still have my cast on, but part of the front has been cut to allow movement and I have a heel on the cast so I can put some weight through it.
so in the last 6 wweeks
i have cried, felt sorry for myself and learned not to be busy!!
laughed at my situation
I have learned to go up and down stairs with crutches my uncle died, and I attended funeral, my son cut hand open and had to attend hospital, my mum fell over And cracked a rib, my son then got an infection in cut, son then Got in a bit of teenage trouble with his non ability to keep quiet with people with authority, dog got an eye infection and my husband has just about lost the will the live due to the amount of visitors we have daily.
I also have a flask and a rucksack to keep myself a bit Independent
i never knew how useful bras and pants could be!!! The things I am able to carry in these two items is amazing
I have lost about 14 lbs - amazing how good your willpower is when you can’t get to the fridge or crisp draw and you have so many visitors you can’t eat.
Visitors. I am so lucky to have so many people keep coming to see me
i have Been working from home on laptop and have had conference calls to keep me in the loop.
i have a mum who comes in every day although she did slow down after she cracked her rib!!!
I remain positive, two more weeks on plaster and then it’s cut off but not sure of next steps…….
i am actually lying on my bed today and don’t intend to move today, as my good foot is in terrible pain in my achillies, to the point I can’t touch it and getting shooting pains up my calf, so have taped up. Got ibruphen and am resting.
anyone know of anyone who ruptured good foot while recoverig from initial rupture I am scared……….
