A_Z Journey of a Broken Foot (Lisfranc Injury)



If you’d like to know about my own injury, here’s a link to the inside scoop :) But my daily A-Z posts are more general and informative, just so, if the time comes, you know what someone is going through because, trust me, it’s not ‘just a broken foot!’

FRACTURE - A crack or break in a hard object or material, typically a bone or a rock stratum: 'a fracture of the left leg'......
FACEBOOK PAGE – I did what so many people do …… I Googled this injury and very swiftly wished I hadn’t. If the pain, bed rest and waiting for an operation wasn’t bad enough, then Googling for information just about finishes you off! Instead, go to the Lisfranc fracture club, lots of support and advice :)

  1. I had a fractured wrist once but it wasn't a full break and I was in a soft cast for 2 weeks. Must've been a linear one.

    1. I liked that photo - you don't really think about there being so many different breaks :) Hope your wrist healed okay x

  2. Knock on wood - I've never had a broken bone. I can't imagine all the peripheral issues that come with something like that. Good luck on the challenge! We're doing “I’ve Got The Music In Me” this year on The Road We’ve Shared. – looking at how important music is in the Down syndrome community. I hope you’ll stop by and see/hear! http://theroadweveshared.com/category/a-to-z-blogging-challenge-2016
