hello! I just discovered this site! My tpf happened 2 months ago while standing on an old step stool, trying to attach a curtain rod above a window. While on the stool I realized I forgot an important tool so instead of getting off the step stool and walking 3 steps to get it, I stayed on the stool & reached as far as I could to grab the tool from a nearby shelf. The next thing I remember was the stool going out from under me and being airborne with my leg mangled up in the stool. Then came the worst pain I’ve ever experienced! It’s been 2 months since my surgery and I’m healing well, but was told today it could take another month or two before I can put weight on it. I’m looking forward to hearing how you all are doing and any tips, etc…Thanks!
