Hi Yamal; I had the same injury as you on 1/27/13 – over a year ago. 2 weeks on a wound vac and three fasciotomy surgeries before they could repair the bone. My doctor had me doing non-weight bearing ROM a week after surgery. I would talk to your doc about that because the sooner you move it the better – talk to a physio. I would also get off the meds right a way. That’s what is making you so emotional. Better to have a stiff drink for the pain than the narcotics. Once you start walking in 12 weeks really work hard at your PT and you’ll get better fast. It took me about a year and I’m doing much better. Hang in ther buddy!
