Oh No Mr Fibula

When I landed on that railroad tie at the bottom of the stairs, past experience told me it wasn't just soft tissue. Something broke. 30 minutes from home and down a dirt trail. ... shook it off and saddled up for the slow pain peddle home. still had to pick up my daughter before driving myself to Kaiser. the walk to the emergency room wasn't pretty. suspicions confirmed, the fractured fibula didn't seem to need casting. all I wanted was a wrap and a cane and go. tried to escape twice, caught both times.
now are crutches better than a cane? they make you look more hurt than debilitated, but canes you can collect in a basket at the front with your umbrellas.
Well, there goes the season. If it matters, worlds are still a possibility.

I busted them both and got a rod...89 days later I finished 2nd in my first TT. You should be getting to the gym in a week or so once the pain comes down, get off the meds, massage, ice, etc.

call me if you have any ?'s I have lots of stoopid answers.

H - Oh man, so sorry to hear that. I'd get a 2nd opinion on the cast issue. You need that sucker to heal properly, even though it's not load bearing. Heal quickly!
