Hi guys, Today has NOT been a good day. Ended up falling in my kitchen this morning and took a bit of a fumble!!!!!!Spent most of the day in the emergency room. Have a broken left tibia and a torn MCL on the same knee. On crutches, non weight bearing and in a knee immobilizer. Already had an ortho appointment scheduled for Monday which is good. Had 2 doses of IV Dilaudid which helped for a bit. Right now, just resting with it elevated and have ice at the ready. Will chat later when I feel up to it.
Mimi, hurting off and on but it's tolerable at this point. Got changed down to a hinged knee brace that must stay locked at all times. Out of work until November 7th at this point, but might not be able to go back then even. Crutches are nuisance.
Oh, so sorry you took a nasty fall! I am like Mimikay in that I would kill myself on crutches. I do balance exercises, but still fall & get easily tipped to one side or other. I hope your meds will keep the pain in check until you get more accustomed to the tedious crutches & knee brace. Take it slow & easy for a time💐
