I found that being on endone removed the requirement to wipe my own arse. I also kind of miss sitting in a chair in the shower. I definitely miss have all my meals prepared for me and not doing any washing up for about 4 months.

Personally, I'm glad ODH has written every one of his posts and believe that some good can come from every one of them.

How's the healing process coming along, Eve?

9:44:59 AM
thanks Doug, healing is continuing in a beautiful purple plaster. I had the stitches and backslap removed a week and a half ago and the doc was happy with the healing. The foot looked almost normal (I guess I've gotten so used to it being swollen like a basketball), except for the pretty big scar on the outside of the ankle.
The plaster is now staying on for a total of 6 weeks but I can do some movement inside the plaster and the discomfort is almost minimal (compared to what it was). first drive (in automatic) 2 days ago and getting pretty good hobbling along in the supermarket. on the climbing wall (in our house), I just drag myself along on the lower holds and just do mini-pull-ups. All in all, I can't complain (needless to say that I'm looking forward to getting the bloody thing off :-); now 4,5 weeks to go...).

Good luck Eve. Stay strong and focused...

tomorrow the plaster comes off and I'll then graduate to a moonboot.
But climbing was still possible:

That's inspiring!

I seem to recall Steve Monks seconding Saggitarian (23) on Dec Crag with a broken 'foot'. The plaster had been texta'd to look like a Fire climbing boot to help with friction.

Hi Gad, just stumbled across your post. I had a 50ft fall on 13/05/13. I managed a few nasty injuries including seriously breaking both feet, knee and my back. My left calcaneus is completey shattered and I am now post op. Doctors/surgeons prognosis is the same as yours "life changing injury" "unable to walk on uneven ground" chronic arthiritis". I was interested to know how you were coming along with your recovery?
Many thanks, Leon.

Jeez, treewalker, that sounds bad. Good luck with your recovery - sounds like you are somewhat lucky to be posting this today. Care to share what happened?
9:14:58 AM
Hey Damo, this is the thread full of recovery stories I was talking about for Bec.
