Sandra, Catherine, Francine, Susan, and all,
I wish you a happy New Year with much encouragement. I am six months into my TPF and just had a plate and nine screws removed. Ten days after surgery, I am walking without pain and without crutches. I had good mobility going in and am hoping to run again about one year after the injury. I have found faith that sustained me through the dark times–it was really ugly spending the summer on the sofa!–and I want to encourage fellow TPFers to keep going, because it does get better.
