I went and had xrays on my leg yesterday and it's all healed up I broke it in February and had to have surgery on it, a metal plate and 8 screws put in. The doc said I can walk without a walker or a cane now (she hasn't tried being me, LOL). So yesterday I took my first real steps in 3 months...wobbling and limping but really walking.
When I broke my leg, it was just by falling out in the yard in the mud. It was the kind of break that happens more often in motorcycle accidents. I broke my foot a couple of years ago and my hand about 8 years ago, not in car accidents, just dumb things around the house (the foot was a victim of platform shoes). Those were minor compared to the broken leg, no surgery needed to fix them. I used to drink Diet Coke by the gallon, just about...DH and I would go through a 3L bottle a day, sometimes more. The doctors said I had to quit drinking Diet Coke if I wanted to be able to walk ever again...apparently the phosphoric acid in it leaches calcium from the bones and my bones were weakened from drinking so much of it. I had no idea it could do that much damage to me, they should put a warning label on it.
Glad to hear you're up and around - now just be careful
I feel for you, I broke my ankle three years ago, with the same results, surgery, plate and five screws. Take heart from the fact, I can now linedance again. You take care and go girl, just be careful for awhile. It does get even better with time.
