May 28 , after camping. 4 days memorial weekend , came home Monday , worked Tuesday. , came home from work to mow the grass
Got mower out and crossed behind TT and right thigh muscle locked up and down to the ground , face first I went ( slowly ) spun around on the ground called and whistled for wife She got me up , felt like a cramp " I can walk this out "
Took 2 steps and left leg did same.can not support my weight on legs .
Called 911 go to ER , stay 12 hrs there ,admit to room , next day wife takes right sock off and I have a very swollen ankle , X-ray shows broke fibula right above ankle ( ER ask me I said its sore and I can move it , they never checked it . Cast on right leg , no weight bearing .
5 days in hospital to treat Rhabdomyolysis , lots of IV bags , still can't walk
Now in rehab hospital , 17 days ,blood work good , working on quads muscles to get stronger from Rhabdomyolysis , maybe another week here ,
