Oh ... Auwa! Well hope it mends well and soon.
How's going today? hope it's healing & the pain is less intense. Holy fuck that musta hurt!! x
I hope you have a friend to, er, give you a hand if you need itI’m feeling much better every day. I have some more mobility than I initially had. I was in so much shock and I had morphine as soon as I got in the ambulance that I really don’t remember a lot of the pain. Picking myself up off the pavement was the worst I remember of it all.

That sounds horrible mate, i'm glad to hear your getting better each day.
Back in 2007 I was stepping out the front door and I didn't see but someone left shoes at the front step with a large rear heel on them. Anyway I stepped out the front door not looking down and my right foot stepped on the heel and then all I remember was my right foot twisting around and I pretty much fell pretty hard with all my weight on that right foot. It was quite painful but I thought that it's probably just an ankle sprain and it might be better the next day.
I really couldn't sleep that night I was in so much pain then I was starting to think maybe this is more than just a strain on the ankle. The next morning my right foot and toes had swollen alot maybe over 1 inch? Also the skin colour on my foot sort of went a dark bruised colour. I thought I'd better go to the local doctor straight away and get it looked at. Anyway I went to the doctor and he sent me straight away to get x-rayed that morning. I had fractured the outer bone on my right foot when it twisted around and I fell on it. Doctor said you are lucky you didn't also break your ankle when it happened.
Luckily I was told to just bandage it up and keep the weight off it for around 6 to 8 weeks for the bone to heal. I got crutches to walk around in but I found it too hard to walk with them so I just gave up and sat around the house most of the time until it healed.
At first it was hard to drive the car I even had pain trying to press the accelerator pedal in the car. I probably shouldn't have been trying to drive at all while it was healing but as the days went on the pain was getting a little bit less each day. It's an automatic car so I was using my stronger left foot for braking in the car till my right foot healed enough to start putting some pressure on it again.
But it's no way near as bad as your arm mate having to have surgery on it and getting metal plates and screws installed.
It's great to hear that it's feeling better and you are recovering. Cheers and all the best mate!
Brutal... I broke my leg a week before kindergarten! Honestly breaking my arm has sounded worse than it actually has been. I’m not in a cast and aside from still having 3 sets of stitches from the surgery and no weight bearing I’m fine. I’ve taken time off work as well which makes this a much easier process.
