Just found this site-good stuff reading here. Here's a bit about what's going on. I've had Type 2 since 1998. I fell in Feb. 09 on black ice and suffered a trimalleor fracture with partial dislocation-broke the ankle in 3 places and dislocated it. They didn't put pins and plates in because lucky me-my BS spiked immediately due to the stress of the injury to 300! It was only 92 when I left the house. So they fixed it the old fashioned way-set it and hope for the best. I could have lost my foot/leg due to the high BS and infection risk.
Fast forward to now. I have limited motion in the ankle-it doesn't flex and is locked. I can't run-never will again. I have been given the go ahead to exercise again. I am getting on the bicycle tomorrow to take it around the block-I've been in our pool this summer(that makes my ankle feel SO much better). What other means of things can I do-I was doing some gym stuff for upper body for a bit-but being it's nice out-I hate being inside. Til I find a job again(lost that due to this since it's my right foot and I drove a school bus). So this is my new line of work-get me healthy. Any suggestions on what to add? I have bad balance on that foot-I've got PT exercises for that.
Thanks for any advice!
