45 years old with my very first broken bone. That ankle that I twisted at work last month. It is indeed fractured. The base doctors had pretty much done all they could do, including taking x-rays that showed nothing. It is still swollen and still painful to walk on so they referred me to an ortho surgeon and I had an appointment today. His x-rays showed a break. A chip in the bone and then behind the chip, the fracture. He put me in a most attractive boot cast and hooked me up with a bottle of super duper Motrin. He also gave me a handicapped parking permit to use while I'm waiting for this thing to heal.
I don't know how that's going to affect my job. I'm a co-op and in training and can't very well train on an airplane with a broken foot. Sigh.
