So I just found this page and I am very excited! I had an accident on June 15th where I basically fell out of my SUV while retrieving something from a mailbox. I tried to get back into my SUV when my foot slipped off the brake and it began rolling. I fell, suffered the tibial,plateau fracture and then my SUV ran over my foot. I had one break and 5 fractures. I was in surgery the next day and now I have a plate and 7 screws. I guess I should add that I am 38 years old and not in the best of shape. I was NWB for about 6 weeks and I used a walker when necessary. I was then partial for about 4 weeks with the walker and then I transitioned to a cane, which I am using now. I went to therapy for 8 weeks and have continued therapy myself at home. I am scheduled to go back to work in 2 weeks, however, I am still experiencing pain and swelling and now am having some weird nerve pain in my thigh that is keeping me awake at night. My doc is in Europe so I have not spoken with him about it yet. Anyone else having this sort of thing? Any idea what it might be?
