Once I had settled in at home and could concentrate long enough to actually browse some search results, I started looking for rehab stories written by people who had been through similar surgeries. Honestly I was surprised by how few sites I managed to dig up. Two sites that I’ve found to be informative and useful are the following:
Jake McMillan’s 21st Century Boy provides a well written and humorous seven part series on his adventure with a broken tibia and fibula.
I also found Stephanie Abegg’s Recovery Trip Report to be an interesting read. She gives an almost day by day account of her battle to recover from a compound tibfib fracture and a nasty MRSA infection.
As, or if, I find other interesting sites I will certainly amend this entry. If you should stumble across this site and have another worthwhile site to contribute, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment.
UPDATE: I found another site with a lengthy thread containing comments from many people suffering similar injuries. Perhaps it’s my current state of mind, but overall I find the discussion on the site more depressing than uplifting where rehabilitation is concerned. Having stated that, you can check it out at: Sports Injury Info.
