On 6/27/15, I sustained a significant fracture to my Lisfranc joint from a 10 foot fall during an obstacle course race. On 7/7/15, I had ORIF surgery to repair a commuted fracture to my navicular bone, fractures to my 1st, 2nd, and 3rd cunieforms, a fractured cuboid, and dislocations of 4 metatarsal bones. This blog is my experience. Hopefully it will help others who have suffered this horrific injury and inspire you to overcome life's obstacles.

Well, my first session of physical therapy is in the books! I went to see the Lisfranc specialist and she is going to help me get range of motion back in preparation for walking again. I scheduled my 2nd foot surgery to remove some of my hardware for October 13th. Once those are out, I can start bearing weight on my foot. My doctor is conveniently out of town when I would have hit my 12 weeks, so I will be delayed by a week, but I'm still really excited! I'm no stranger to physical therapy…
