Kick up your exercise program and get your bike worked on. Expect to be on it in six weeks.

1. Can only run a mile on it and my knee and ankle hurt too much
2. still scared to jump off things
3. knee still is stiff. So is ankle.
4. Still cant bounce on just my left toes
I did a triathlon on the 26th 11 weeks out. was pretty fun but ankle and knee are feeling it. Actually was keeping a decent pace till the run.
Otherwise feels normal
Otherwise pretty good. Here are the xrays. We'll see if I can get on the bike.
To recap: This is how it was when I went in to Dr. Mark. Bent the plate.. Not as bad as it looks. Dont get me wrong hurts like a broken leg but was good becuase the plate held everything tight so it didnt feel that bad.

Beyond the usual risks, there is little to prevent you from riding your dirt bike.

I have 3 herniated discs in my back. I can no longer ride at this point.
Amnesia where are you from in CT?
I was a regular @ Rocky Hill for the last 6 yrs until 2mos ago.

Ankle: feels great its a little swollen from running lately but not bad and getting stronger
Actual bone and area of the break - painless! Totally different from before I broke it the 2nd time. If I had known the bone were not healed I'd never have been riding.
Knee - Issues. This is the holdback. Today I was rolling the bigger jumps and rolling whoop sections. It hurts to land bigger jumps and go fast through bumpy terrain. As I warmed up it got better but still a major holdback. Good news is its not swollen
Is this something I can work out or is it just going to take time or both?

My knee is pretty much the least of my concerns. I am doing squats at the gym at 200lbs (I was doing 300+ before the injury), my knee does hurt a little bit when I get down all the way, but the tendons in the front of my ankle are what I feel the most.
Keep up the good work.

after reading your interaction and seeing the testimony of your work on amenesia I feel inclined to post about my bang in hopes of any feedback.
I sustained a sprial fracture to tib and fib on the 21st of May (last Sat). Initially er wanted to resplint me and send me home since the fracture didn't break through my skin. I was adamant about not going home because my leg felt extremely fragile (like broken china)
The next day I had surgery performed. Rod and screws placed. Upon surgery the doc noticed that my ankle was fractured to so he repaired that too. Post op I am immobilized in a partial plaster splint with bandage outer wrap and was provided crutches and non weight bearing instructions.
Since day 1 post op, I have been stretching the quad and doing leg and knee raises. I was told by the doctor that based on my two week follow up visit he may cast me or put me in a walking boot.
Being in a cast seems like it will be a big set back. Up until yesterday my pain has been at at level 3. I've been keeping it elevated and intaking arnica. Yesterday I started having a lot of pain at the top part of my foot and its swollen. Is that normal? Any recommendations or words of wisdom in reference to my post op visit?
