Hi Joanna best way to get comfortable is to us a bean bag and try elevate your leg but support under the knee. I spent a lot of time sat on my firm bed using the bean bag or pillows to raise it. This helps with the swelling and also use pillows to rest leg on when sleeping. I too live in the uk, thank god for the NHS I say. I fractured mine TP 14 weeks ago, had surgery two days after accident to plate and graft smashed bits of bone. I have just come back from a two week holiday in the Algarve …..great moral booster. This was something I thought I would not be able to do. Had regular physio and start a hour gym session at the local hospital tomorrow, nervous but excited too. Once your brace off use ice pack to help with the swelling too. Good luck Jo
