PostSubject: I broke my leg!   Sun Mar 31, 2013 12:55 pm

Yes, I was out geocaching in Alabama this weekend and broke my leg and dislocated my ankle. They were able to put the ankle back in place at the ER. I will be going to an orthopedic doc sometime this week for further care. The ER doc was convinced that I would need surgery to set the bone back in place. So, I may be down for a while. I need prayers badly!

Sorry to hear that Alldat. I will pray for a quick recovery for you, breaking bones is nasty.

Who knew geocaching could be so violent?

It wouldn't be so bad had this been a really difficult terrain geocache. It was an easy 1.5/1.5. It was just a freak accident, and I am the freak who had the accident.

Getting in to see a doctor is tough, though. I called one office of orthopedic docs that I used for my foot surgeries years ago. They now have to have you drop off your x-rays and let them view them BEFORE they can even schedule an appointment. I don't have the ability to drive right now with my right leg being the one broken. My wife is trying to work since I will be out of one of my jobs for probably several weeks. I think I can continue being the youth pastor for a while on crutches or in a chair. Anyway, they want me to have her come home, take the x-rays to them, and then come back and pic them up after they view them before they would schedule an appointment. It sounds like someone has gotten a bit too big for their britches!

My pastor's wife gave me a doctor's name that they had used before. I called their office, and they set me up for an appointment over the phone. I go tomorrow at 8:30 AM.

You are in my prayers !!!

You need the surgery to hel that broken leg better?

Keep us posted about going to the doctor and how it goes.
It's really bummer to have a broken leg and not being able to go to work.

Well, it looks like I am bound for surgery. I will have a permanent steel plate put in my ankle on Thursday. I will also have to have injections for potential blood clots since there is a history of this in the family.

Oh man that doesn't sound like fun. Can they at least give you a bionic ankle?

All joking aside, praying your surgery will go well, and that you have a swift and complete recovery.

That doesn't sound fun.
No, not at all.

A steel plate with has to be placed in your leg.
That sounds serious.
Was your leg so bad that they have to put a steel plate in it to heal the bone?

Will pray for you for the surgery that it all goes well.
At what time is your surgery scheduled?

Yes. The smaller bone in my leg isn't even attached to the ankle right now. So, without the splint, my ankle would just pop back out of socket. The plate will allow that bone to heal and provide needed structural integrity. That plate will also be fused to the larger bone in my leg. This could mean two incisions. This hardware will become a permanent piece of me. So, come Thursday, I become part machine. I am a cyborg!

All jokes aside, I can't say I am thrilled with the prognosis. However, if I want to be able to walk, then this is necessary. So, the pain and healing time will be worth it.

Amazing how frail our bodies can be at times. Of course, you're supposed to be like 70 or 80 when a little slip breaks your bones. Overachiever! Twisted Evil

I can understand you are not thrilled about this.
But believe me they give you something to sleep during the surgery.
Do you have to stay in the hospital?
Or when it's all ok you can go home?

Made it through the surgery fine. Had a sleepless night last night with a lot of pain and found out that I am allergic to my pain meds. I got those changed and slept throughout the day.

That metal in your ankle will make your foot cold for the rest of your life......my younger brother broke his ankle at a track meet in HS and his leg has 2 plates and 10 screws in it......he spends the whole winter complaining about how cold that foot is all the time.

I can handle the cold. Not being able to walk again with that leg is something that I wouldn't have wanted to live with. A couple of steel plates and a cold ankle sound wonderful compared to not walking.

Finally, I am through with the shots for potential blood clots. I was supposed to lay pretty flat with my foot elevated for most of the time. I did leave the house on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday though just to keep my sanity. Thursday will mark two weeks since the surgery and I should get my cast then. I should only be in it for 2 weeks before going into a walking boot.
