I’m so sorry to hear of this. I suffered my TPF in May. I needed two surgeries and now have 2 plates and 14 screws in my lower leg. My doctor has told me that it can take up to 2 full years before you get back what you have lost.
I am still in a wheelchair and will be NWB until September (at least). I, too, worry about the long term consequences of this injury but I have to hold onto the message that healing from the trauma of a TPF takes time and work, as well as trying to manage the emotional aspect of it all.
Hold on, and keep working it!
