    Broken Fibula

    1
    I recently suffered a dislocated ankle, resulting in a broken fibula. Surgery was performed to fuse the fibula back together with plates and screws. I have been a distance runner for the past 3 years and was working towards a half marathon this summer. Have any other athletes experienced such an injury? 
  • Hi im new to this group support thing. Is anybody else a runner in here?
  • Hello! so im not excpecting any responses but I just wanted to share my situation. 2 1/2 months ago I went from running 50 miles a week getting ready to compete on my cross country team in the fall, to having terrible pain in my knee. My school athletic trainers were good about getting me an MRI within a few days and within hours after that I found out I tore my Lateral Meniscus almost...

    Pain and Depression after ACL Surgery

    0
    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post but I just had surgery to reconstuct my ACL 3 weeks ago. I am having a very hard time coping (I already had depression and anxiety) and feel very discouraged because I am behind in my rehab and have no idea why. I do everything the PT says, even though it is excrutiating but still it seems I am behind per my doctor's outline. On top of all this my...

    Stress Fracture

    2
    Hi all, I'm a runner who was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with a stress fracture on the neck of my left femur. Once the x-ray results were back my PCP instructed me to stop ALL exercise, including low impact activities like yoga. I then had an MRI, bone scan, and a consult with an orthopedist. After practically begging, the orthopedist said I can do easy exercise like swimming, low-resistance cycling,...

    1
    Hey gang,I just recently (as in today is Thursday 5/19 and recently is Monday 5/16) got out of the hospital after a 12 day stay following a TBI that I sustained while downhill skateboarding (going 30-60 mph on a skateboard down an open mountain road).

I tried to pull it together, went to physical therapy, pushed myself to get better and focus and go back, and I really thought I could do it. Like I...

    Hi. I'm 35 years old and I have been running for about 4 years now. I usually run at least 3 days a week. I have done several 5k races and I have been training for longer distances. I love to run. I wish I could bottle the feeling you get after a good run and keep it for emergencies. I obsess over it. When I see a runner while I'm driving I get insanely jealous and I want to park my car and run...
