I have a broken Distal Fibula! I may also have a broken wrist. I didnt have it x-rayed last night, but it hurts like a mofo too.

Party time!

Anybody else on here currently have anything broken?

I was at church playing basketball. On the second play I went up for a rebound, caught it, and shot it in. On my way down, I landed where the black top and ground meet. I ended up, "crilling" my ankle. If you dont know what that is, its where you land or step on it sideways.

So I chipped a part of my fibula off, and have to wear this big boot around.
(not my foot, just googled it)

My femur.

It hurts really bad.
Are you serious? I've been there, and it sucks.

I broke mine when I was in seventh grade. It wasn't really the pain that bothered me, but the lack of mobility and the long recovery. In fact, the pain I eventually got in my armpits from being on crutches for six weeks was "worse" (or at least a lot more irritating) than the pain in my leg. They operated on me and put two rods in my leg (which I got removed later that year); the other option was to be in an almost-full-body cast for six weeks, which would have made the transition to walking again terrible and I wouldn't have been able to move basically at all the entire time. But even after I got off of my crutches, it was a few months before I was walking normally again and even longer until I could run.

But don't let that get you down. I'm fully healed up and healthy now, and somewhat athletic. Hopefully you had a clean break like I did, because your recovery should be fine (if frustrating).
