I fractured my talus a few weeks back taking a fall rock climbing. I am wondering what the long-term recovery outlook is for this type of injury. I made the mistake of googling this, and it looks bleak. I read testimonials of people who couldn't even [I]walk[/I] without pain, let alone [I]run.[/I]
Has anyone out there had this injury? If so, how long until you were training again? What sort of specific problems did you experience during training. For example, did you experience tight ankles during swim kick, difficulty in clipping in and out of bike, or pain during run?
I've been pretty bummed out about the whole thing, and I'm quite worried about the long-term implications of this injury.
