Hi, have never posted here before, but have ongoing problem with pain at site of fracture from 2008. Fell when I passed out, and broke my leg/ankle. Can go for weeks without any pain or discomfort, then for a period of time have intense bursts of pain that can last for seconds or hours. At times, just the touch of a sheet or wisp of cotton can set off shock waves of pain. There is a small, uber-sensitive nodule over the site of the fracture. What gives? What is going on here?View Thread
I know that for me, my own chronic pain has made me more aware and compassionate fo other people and their own struggles. As a nurse, it is so important to be supportive of our patients and their journeys.View Thread
