Severe pain when I came to. Hard to walk on, at this stage didn’t realize was broken. Pain intensifying, nausea. Could not touch area, foot swelling like a balloon, and broken bone on outside of right foot. Foot in cast and on crutches. Slightly can weight bear (nearly 2 week). Cannot work for up to eight weeks. Constant pain and tingling in foot..

It was late but the plants I had ready for planting in pots were looking sad so I decided to water them. To get to the tap I only had to go down the 3 steps off my friend’s decking. It was dark, around about midnight. I managed the first step next moment I was in the road. Although it hurt I didn’t think it was broken. This being a Sunday, my son picked me up on Monday. I didn’t go to the hospital till Thursday and I got my new accessory ‘the boot.’ I have now had it on for 11 weeks as it wasn’t healed after the 6 week checkup. I am due again next week and as far I can tell it is still broken. I am so fed up. I can’t drive, wear nice clothes or my lovely high heeled shoes..
