Well this isn't my actual x-ray, but it is rather similar to what I have except the plate is higher up and the large screw isn't connected to it. I have a doctor's appointment next Thursday, where hopefully I'll be able to take pictures of both the original x-ray and the current one.
This week I've gone out on my crutches once, and gone to physio twice where I met some Filipinas who are care workers taking some elderly ladies to physio. It was neat to chat with them while the electric current was being shot through my leg. It's nothing much, just a mild tingling feeling. I also have a heat pack I can apply every day at home. That's about the extent of my physiotherapy right now. It's time for mid-terms again, so I have a few days off of class to plan my December lessons, and try to find other ways to amuse myself.
I've been trying to think through going out by myself (like is it possible, how could i do it, where should i go) and have concluded that I'm not quite at that stage yet, but I'm getting there slowly. I also did a step on my crutches this week without hesitation, whereas before I'd have to hesitate and work myself up to it for a few minutes. I haven't done a series of stairs yet which is necessary before I can try to take the train.
