Hi, five weeks ago I broke my fibula, dislocated my ankle and ruptured the ligaments around the ankle. I now have a metal plate and 6 screws to fix the broken fibula and also a metal pin (temporary) in my lower leg/ankle. I will have an operation to remove the pin after my plaster comes off and then will receive physiotherapy.
Has anybody reading this forum suffered a similar injury?
If so, how long was it before you got back to exercise/running? Did you make a full recovery?
Also, can you give me any advice on what I can do to help my leg/ankle get back to normal? I have been hearing all sorts of horror stories about this type of injury and am concerned that I will not be able to do all the things I did before.
Thanks in advance
