    Ah hefe man that brings me back exactly 12 weeks. You're on the up and up! Good on ya for attempting to kick the pk's. I was informed by my surgeon that I should always try to take them at night if anytime, to ensure an uninterrupted nights rest.
    I have been taking the CBD tincture and then using a cream that is made by cannalife. They have both helped in different ways. The CBD has been useful as an anti inflammatory, and the creme is more of a muscle relaxant... And then there are other edibles to bide time.
    Looks like you got a fair amount of hardware.

    First night of good sleep with no pain killers or sleeping pills. Pain is basically non existent during the day.

    Started basic R.O.M. stuff, pretty crazy how little control I have of my ankle and toes. Scary.

    Going to pick up some edibles and CBD today.

    Any tips for freshening up the air cast? Starting to stink pretty bad!

    I had an ossur rebound air cast. I took the liner out and washed it in the sink... fairly frequently... but definitely not frequently enough...

    I never wore the cast without some type of protective layer as well.

    Finally got my xrays. Swelling is down but still in walking boot with no weight bearing at 4.5 weeks. Muscle atrophy is scary.

    Checking in. Almost 3 months in and I am now walking a bit with no boot (not supposed to be yet). Swelling is way down and no pain at really. Got most of my ROM back as well.

    cmcrawfo hooked me up with a trainer bike and have been swimming quite a bit. Helped a ton.

    Went from being pretty panicked and depressed to feeling good about it. Saw a new pyshio (they rotate a bit at the hospital) and she said I am extremely lucky to be doing as well as I am given the extent of the injuries. I should make a full recovery!

    congrats! As soon as I was full WB I was at the hot yoga as much as I could handle (still am). Some days I would show up in class and just lay my legs up the wall for the whole class.

    Nice. I don't have the patience or attention span for any kind of yoga. Even with hot chicks.

    Been doing PT a ton, ice like a mofo (desk job). and been hitting the bike a ton.

    And I think genetics have played a part. My mom has broken almost every bone in her body and is still waterskiing and pow skiing every day at 68.

    Where does she find pow every day?
    I want to move there.
