hello again!

had another check up today at the fracture clinic, was hoping they would let me start bending my knee but doctor has advised to keep my leg straight in the ROM brace for another 3 weeks (total of 6 before i can start bending). Stitches were removed didnt really hurt but was annoying and uncomfortable. My leg has shrunk so much no muscle left…really worrying but was assured i would eventually get most of it back when i start physio.

just a waiting game now another 3weeks till my next check up, was told today that i cant put any weight on it for a total of 12 weeks, iam a quarter way there cannot wait to actually start strengthening my leg and take those first few steps. this injury is a humbling experience, learned so much about myself and life in general over the last few weeks.

till my next visit to the docs
