I broke my fibula during jujitsu training. Doc says 6-8 weeks before I can walk and a few months after that before I can train on it.
I am wondering how such an injury will affect my squat in the long run. There is slight displacement and doc is letting it grow back slightly displaced so I’m wondering if anyone had similar injuries and what their story is like when they started training again. Did it affect you in the long run? Did u have reduced ankle mobility?[/quote]
Well, I had a serious injury and surgery on my knee, not exactly the same, but similar. One part of the surgery was they had to break my tibia. The Doctor said that I wouldn’t really be able to do much until about 4 months following surgery, but I was back in the gym squatting in less than 3. I think it really depends on your recovery abilities.
After that, it took a while to regain strength, and I probably returned to my pre surgery strength 6 months after it (I had to have two more procedures, so that made it tougher). Now I am MUCH stronger than before, but this is over two years following the initial surgery, so thats to be expected. Just think about the long term. You will recover and you will get stronger, don’t get down on yourself if you are not strong right away, it will just take some time.
