Hi David, I'm new to this forum. On October 27th last year I hit the ground and fractured my talus and tibia and fibula and some other bone I forget down there, so I'm not sure if my healing time would be relevant for you. But for what it's worth I am only just now getting to the point where I can put enough pressure on my toes to lift my bodyweight. Only started climbing again about a month ago and only on super easy stuff.

Jumping off a gutter and landing on that foot still feels quite strange. I'm really quite amazed at how long it has taken. Physio thinks it won't be until November that I have full strength.
So basically it will take me a full year.

Hope that bone heals up nice and fast mate. Bouldering will get you every time!

>still fractured 90% of the way through.

I was listening to radio yesterday, and interviewer was talking to a footballer who has managed to do similar to himself.
Footballer won't return to footie prematurely due it being a reknown slow healing thing, and apparently equally an easy thing to rebreak, with the second time healing taking even longer than the first. He is prepared to forego revenue this season as a result.

Speaking from the aged perspective, I reckon you would do well to give it the attention it deserves, rather than stressing it too early, as these things have a habit of paying you back in the long run...

This is bugger news? Oh, sorry, I can't recommend a reputable cheap overseas supplier of teaspooned cement ;-)

Yep, don't mess with a busted Talus.

BAD bone to break. Depends somewhat on where you have broken it (neck or dome?).

Everyone is different, but I fractured my Talur dome (the bit on top that connects with your leg bones, not the 'neck' that sticks out the front and connects to your foot bones). My ankle is pretty much completely fcked now, and will eventually need to be fused.

Invest time in healing now... don't drop onto your friging ankle for a while! If you land on it again now, you will likely regret it.

Good luck, happy to chat and/or give further info on my experience.

I took a fall from about 3.5m up a climb over here in WA in Feb and put a hairline fracture in the lateral maleolus of my ankle. Cast for 2.5 weeks, moonboot for 4.5 on top of that. The fracture healed well fast once I worked out which foods to each and what supplements to take to help with the healing process. But the not walking on my leg has killed my ability to run and exact a forceful flykick.

I can climb and have been since May, but I have to be really careful with landings. I think it'll be another 3-4 months of training to get back to full strength. And unsure about when full flexibility will return. Definitely listen to your doc and physio thats for sure.

Good luck with it - I have been following your thread for some time now recovering from multiPle surgeries on torn wrist ligaments 5 months so far and I hope to climb soon. Having smashed my ankle in the past I can tell you that it gets better to some degree and then gets worse again. Don' t fall on it again at least for a couple years or u are screwed literally ( like I am 3 nice permanent long ones). Good news for you is you can climb on one stuffed ankle you just adjust and become friends with vit I ( get a prescription from a doc for parietal or it will stuff your stomach). Bad news for me is you can not climb with 1 hand unless you are Johnny dawews and I am not. Cheers and stick with it

With hindsight.....was crawling out and further injuring your ankle worth the longer rehab time.......or would calling for some assistance (from mate's if you could....not emergency services) and reducing the damage to your ankle a more smarter option???

I know that I would want to crawl out if I were in that position. I would consider calling friends to help me out. I certainly wouldn't call 000 but what is the best outcome??

Come on now marto, every ODH knows that you can't do anything bad while bouldering that would require assistance from another human or next of kin details. Clearly you're off your chops, and davidn, you're a pansie for not being able to boulder. Alone. Telling noone where you were going.
pfft. Calling yourself a boulderer.

Please send scripts. Menicus in knee is playing up again. My tretment involves longneckeck wobbling home, a middy of vodka and 4 of those little white pills. And then I am walking in the land of jolly green giants
