Number Of Legs


Recommended Posts

The number of my legs successfully fractured/broken this weekend = 1.

Find out more tomorrow. It's either a broken fibula or what the hospital described as a spectacular fracture I.e. 95% through. Which is nice-ish.

Eeek! You weren't reaching for an 1819 Hunter's Hallamshire for £10 on the top shelf of an old book store or such like was you?!?

I managed to break my leg in three places years ago, while attempting to reach a paint pot through the loft hatch.

Not only did I break the ends off tib & fib but also a bone in my ankle, I can't remember the medical term but it began with tri-something

To look down and see your foot pointing east-west, instead of north-south, comes as a bit of a shock. It did sting a bit as well :o

A couple of days in the NGH and enough bits of metal plate and screws to hold a wardrobe together, soon put me right although I'm banned from MRI scanners.

You've not developed further Thespian tendencies have you by any chance, when a fellow actor tells you to "break a leg" they don't really mean it. :wub:

Good luck with it.

Not received as part of re-enactment - was walking back after the days events.

A war wound perhaps? Does re-enactment go as far as medical treatment for injuries received?

Spiral break of base of fibula, give it a week, will either be knitting together nicely (no further action, just 6-8 weeks healing) or if its still loose, may need pinning which doesn't sound very nice ... ish.
