How Long Will It Take You To Be 100% Again

In Ask Maya 11 I’m answering one of the most common questions I get on a regular basis. Most people want to know when they’ll get back to normal. In this episode, I’m answering Chris’s question, as well as everyone who wants to know this.

I fractured my tibia and fibula on January 30th. I got surgery February 7th and I got two screws.
I got surgery again April 20th to remove the screws.
I got told by the doctor I can start walking and get rid of crutches and I have, but I still can’t bend the ankle.
I can walk but with a limp. And I am supposed to get therapy but it’s not till next week. I want to start doing some stretches. What do you recommend to expedite the process? How long do you think it will take me to be at 100% range of motion of the ankle?

    Hi Maya,

    Thank you for this video. I broke my ankle 3 1/2 month ago and had a surgery with plates and screws. Walking with a cane and working hard doing all the exercises. I have a great therapist. However, that great therapist one session assigned to me a new therapist for half an hour to help me with exercises about month ago and guess what he told me “You will never will be 100% your will never will be the same”. His words hurt me so much that I sobbed without stop. I told my original therapist that I do not want to believe what he ever said and do not want him ever helping me. His negative statement affected me for a few weeks and I was very depressed. But, now I am putting all this behind me and want to believe that I definitely will be back and whole again as before. Right now I am working on my balance and do not have balance control on a soft mat so I worried. However, hopeful that everything will be ok. Sometimes, I get depressed over it. I am 60 yrs old and used to be very active before the accident, walking 3 to 4 miles a day and dancing. So, I am praying to be the same as before. Thank you for your video.

      Oh, Sophi, I’m so sorry you had to experience this. Words have power – much, much bigger than what some medical professionals realize. Good for you that you’re leaving this behind and focusing on your progress. Keep me updated, beautiful ❤ xx
