So you broke a bone and you're stuck at home. The most commonly asked question is, now what do I do with all this down time? We have heard many suggestions in the past about how to decorate your cast to improve its look and give you something to do. That often works for so long but your stuck for about 6-8 weeks in a leg cast or arm cast with nothing but TV and a computer.
Why not tell your story of what happened? Often talking about a situation will help you to heal. You also have the opportunity to meet others who may have had a similar break. You can discuss set backs you had in recovery and maybe even meet someone who has fully recovered from their injury. Perhaps they can offer you some optimistic encouragement to help you through the healing process. You may also find it is a learning experience to hear what others have gone through on their road to recovery. You will hear what type of treatment options they have had and their outcomes. Consider it an overall support group for those with broken bones.
So what are you waiting for?
Get on that road to recovery!

It's currently at ground level but we predict it to grow. So you can be one of the first to start a discussion or start a diary about how you broke a bone and your road to recovery.
You will need to log in to view or comment on any discussion and your email and information will never be used or shared with others unless you request it.
