Left the house this morning just before 10am to go do some weight training. Rounded the corner of my house, slipped on some ice, have no idea how I managed to fall in such a way as to pin my ankle from moving where it wanted to but I did. 6 hours later I'm back from the hospital (gotta love Canada's health care system, especially in Saskatchewan). Xray showed a small break on one of the back lobes of the larger bone where it connects to the ankle. Was stable and didn't need to be set, but I need to stay off it now for 6 weeks. Opted for the removeable immobilization boot. Basically I'm looking for any tips on getting various things done from people who have had similar injuries. Things like getting food from the kitchen to the dining table (I'm thinking tupperware and backpack right now). Cooking and cleaning up meals. Bathing. Know I'm taking a bit of a risk removing the brace to bath, but so much easier than worring about keeping a cast dry. I think I'll look into getting a chair for my shower, thankfully it's a tub. Also dressing, right now I'll have to remove the brace to get my pants on and off. Did anyone just go buy a few pairs of pants with larger legs? Thanks in advance for any helpful ideas.
