I know it’s been awhile since you posted this, but I had to respond because I too suffered my tpf when I was run into by a dog running full speed at the dog beach. I can’t tell you how many times I hear “a dog did that to you?” Never underestimate the power of a huge dog running full speed ahead into your leg.
In any case, I’m almost three weeks post surgery (mine was displaced and shattered), and I’m just now beginning to feel the depression. I was a runner, and enjoyed yoga and weight training. Sitting on the couch for three weeks has made me feel purposeless. I’m glad to know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I am a teacher, and worried about trying to go back to work. You post has given me faith that I’ll be active again.
