I broke my ankle the day after Memorial day last month. I did it when I slipped on a diving board and the board cracked my right fibula. Huge bummer.
Here’s what you start to appreciate once you’ve gone through something like this:
- Your spouse who brings you food while you recover from surgery
- Wheelchair accessible ramps
- Stairs with hand rails
- Friends who ask how you’re doing, and even kind enough to drive you around
The biggest issues has been that I was unable to exercise for about 6 weeks, and because of that I’ve started developing lower-back problems. What I’ve found is that when my back hurts, the best thing is to get some exercise and when you get your blood flowing, most body aches and pains dissipate.
