Injuries - Discussion / Tibia Fracture
« on: October 28, 2008, 12:45:33 PM »
So I fractured my tibia and am stuck in a full leg cast for a few more weeks, then an assortment of different casts and such.  While playing soccer, an opposing player did a double-legged slide tackle. I could not put any weight on it and I was carried off of the field.  Immediately after the injury, I knew it was broken, but after seeing the injury, I was surprised.  There was a very low amount of swelling and I have never had any injury problems (except for a chronic groin pull).  After the game ended (longest 45 minutes of my life) I was taken to the emergency room and x-rayed and given the whole regular spiel.  That Monday (injury occured on Saturday the 11th of October), my flimsy splint was taken away and I was given a full leg cast up to my butt.  Currently, my recovery schedule goes like this:
Week 1: Injury occurs.  Given full leg cast.
Week 2: Noticeable improvement in condition.
Week 3: No change from previous week.
Week 4: No appointment.
Week 5: Recast of the leg in either a full leg cast or a small walking cast.  New cast is required due to improper angle of the foot (the angle is at about 60 degrees, the doctors want it at 90 so I will be ready to walk)
Week 10: Cast taken off for walking boot to be removed in shower.
Weeks 11+: Extensive physical therapy needed to regain muscles in time for spring soccer season.

So basically I can't exercise for a long long time.  Also, I am missing my favorite part of soccer season: indoor.  That's $125 I'll never get back.

What is your total time logged in?  Mine is 9 hours 8 minutes.  That's not completely accurate though, as I was watching parkour videos for maybe an hour and this was in the other tab.

What exactly does this abbreviation stand for.  I have seen it used around in the general discussion section and was just a little curious.

When I upload a picture, is gets stretched sideways and distorted.  Is there a way to fix this?
