Welcome Rachel,
This site is amazing for tips, good advice and for making you feel you are not alone. I am 7 weeks post surgery and still have a long way to go. Physio starts next Tuesday and my leg brace comes off next Thursday. I had no idea about a tpf until I read the stories on this site. My dog caused mine by running into me at speed- not as uncommon as you might think! I was NWB for 6 weeks and have been PWB for one so taking things very slowly to aid the recovery. Don’t be reticent about asking friends and family to help all they can and follow the advice from your consultant. Be prepared to watch a lot of television – good time to catch up on those box sets you always wanted to watch. The best thing I have at my disposal is my I pad and I never thought I would ever say that but it has been at my side since I had my accident on 9th July.

Best wishes for your recovery.
