On May 13th, 2010, two weeks before my first 5k run, I fell off my young horse (she tripped at the canter) and I broke my tibia, fibula, & ankle. After surgery (IM nail reamed into tibia & screwed into place with some bone grafting at top near knee) & 5 days in the hospital, I am home & healing. The surgeons said it would be 1 yr before I am back to normal - ie. the condition I was in before the accident. Due to a backlog with physiotherapists, it will be at the 5 wk post-surgery mark before I can get in.
My questions are:
anyone out there experience the same sort of break?
how long did it 'really' take you to recover?
what exercises did you do to keep your ankle & knee mobile?
