Some info on a distal fibular fracture - I hope Karen takes the 'complete rest' aspect seriously:

Distal Fibula Fracture

The distal fibula fracture is a fibula fracture that arises in the joint between the fibula and the ankle. In regular terms, it is classified as an ankle fracture. A distal fibula fracture has all the symptoms related to a regular fibula fracture, with stiffness, pain and swelling in the affected region. The signs of a broken ankle can be observed by taking a look at your ankle. Rotating your ankle, standing straight, and using ankle in any way would lead to a lot of pain. Redness and swelling in the ankle can also be observed due to a distal fibula fracture. The weight bearing ability of the leg and ankle is completely compromised, with the person being unable to carry his own weight. Bruising and swelling are other common symptoms that can be noticed due to a distal fibula fracture. Overall, a fibula fracture is quite troublesome and can lead to complete bed rest and inability to carry out any of the regular tasks during the day.


Distal Fibula Fracture Treatment

The distal fibula fracture treatment can only be pursued by giving complete rest to the injured area. In fact, a distal fibula fracture requires that you avoid putting weight or pressure on your leg and ankles. Apart from giving adequate rest to the injured area, you would have to make use of casts. Casts can accelerate the healing procedure by providing a resting position to the fibula fracture. A distal fibula fracture can heal in about 12 to 24 weeks, depending upon how severe the fracture was.

Hi Pat and Sunny:

It occurred to me this means no driving for Karen for at least a few months so I am grateful Karen has such a strong local support system.

Pat: Please send current news of you and Tony. No news... good news? fingers crossed

SunnySunny: Many many hugs and kisses to you Red Heart

So good to hear you are home and Keith has landed. It sounds like you really did a number on your ankle! Somehow please set your mind to a lengthy healing process, difficult as that will be. Hoping for the best with verdict on your knee. I'm so relieved you have good support over there on your side of the water.
Hugs to you Karen.

Just spoke with Karen. She sends thanks to all who are concerned about her and apologises for not being able to keep up with emails and the forum. It is still just not comfortable for her to sit at the computer. She is still in pain and her cast is very uncomfortable. She was in good spirits but worried about "this and that " and the future prospect of a very lengthy recovery. Her knee is an issue in addition to her ankle.
Karen told me Sandra gee/Sandra R was expected to drop by with a parcel and she arrived while we were speaking on the phone so I will call Karen back later.
Karen would like the admins to keep her updated about the cams and any issues she should know about by calling her during the day.
