Stress Fracture

From symptoms I’m 90%+ sure that this is what’s going on with my lower left leg.

I have an appointment to get it looked at tomorrow.

I was just wondering if anybody else has had experience with this and was curious as to what the recovery time would be before I can go all-out on my leg work again?

I’ve read they are usually like 3 weeks of rest so I hope it’s not more than that.

I had a compression fracture in my wrist and it took me about 6 weeks before I could do anything. 8 weeks and I was playing basketball again. I was also 16.

Not really related at all, but thats my experience with broken bones. lol

So I’m supposed to try and stay off of it and not doing anything that hurts.

And take this vicodin.

I just took two and god… wonderful!!!

Conflicting stuff at the appointment:

Nurse type person needs to weigh me, puts the thing at 150 lbs first thing :frowning:

then my actual doctor is telling me I’m getting too muscular.

so confusing.

Yea I don’t get it.

And don’t worry, I have no current pics in my profile but I don’t even think I look like I work out most days.
