I’ve been walking on a broken ankle for months

Yesterday, my mom commented on how surprised she was at how I’ve been tolerating the pain during recovery. I haven’t been complaining (of course, the drugs have been helping). She is just amazed, especially since in the past week, I’ve made amazing progress and made it yesterday with only taking 4 pain pills all day!

I told her that this weekend I realized that the spot in my ankle that had been giving me the most pain over the past 8+ months is the exact spot where my surgeon found a surprise fracture (and fixed it with a screw).

Basically, I’ve been walking around since July on a broken ankle.

I am such a badass.

I guess I’ve just gotten used to the pain.

I can’t wait to finally walk around without pain or discomfort!

Easing back into work today (part-time, from home). My assistants are taking good care of me.

  1. Amy, women are kick-ass in general w/dealing with pain, and you are so motivated that a little pain isn’t going to knock you down.

    So glad you had the surgery though – I assume it would have just gotten worse and worse.
