Sorry to hear that u went down. I never had any broken bones (knock on wood) so I can't give u any advice but I have ran over and IED(Aug 14th, 2006) and fucked up my knee and know that the road to recovery is long and hard but far from impossible- I ran 6.5 miles today in 58:34(hills included). The only thing I know is that u will never be the same and once u accept that, it's a start and as a Marine one of the first things that they teach us in boot camp is-PAIN IS WEAKNESS LEAVING THE BODY!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow what a story! From what i can see, now all you're suffering from is lack of punctuation in your writing :D kidding! I recently wrecked my bike as well and fractured my fibula, seperated my ligament on the inside of my ankle (and tore a chunk of bone loose), and shattered parts of the tiny bones in my ankle. I've had 4 casts and one surgery. I do my own physical therapy at home and it's been a few weeks now and can honestly say I'm doing a lot better. I'll see how long it takes me to get back on my feet but I'm sure with persistance and hard work you and I will be walking soon enough.
