My right leg is misbehaving. It's not exactly sore, but feels puffy and like it's not moving right. I *know* that it's all nailed together, and the job was done by experts, but something's not right. It keeps feeling something like how it felt before it broke.

Had shopping today, so not a good day for it.

I think I'm on the couch until further notice. Got my walking stick right next to me, although I don't usually need it at home, got my mobile round my neck in case I need to call for help. :/

Unfortunately, that feeling of how it felt before it broke is a feeling that's hard not to get freaked out by - it's a sensation that brings up a traumatic memory. But common sense tells me it's probably nothing, and the steps I'm taking right now are sensible and adequate. So I'll just sit tight and wait for it to pass.

Shit. Fuck. Damn. I'm crossing my fingers that nothing has happened with that leg again. Also sending some soothing vibes for you. xx

Soothing vibes gratefully accepted.
*looks sad eyed and pathetic*
I bet it's nothing though, I'll wake up tomorrow and feel embarrassed for worrying.

After what you've been through with that leg, worry is justified

Yes, I'd never really gotten a sense of the importance of a healthy skeleton before this happened. It was just something that was there.

I doubt it's going to need checking, but if it's still iffy on Monday (Friday night atm) I guess it will.

Maybe you should get it looked at?
Ah...I see others have the same concern.

It's super, super hard not to be worrity when something hurts that's in the area of a previous injury. Your whole body's wired to freak out about it from memory. So stay on the couch, consider mild massage or a heat pack if it doesn't make you more fretful or achy, and distract yourself with some telly or something. Hopefully it'll sod off and you'll be fine tomorrow.
