@March1stBride:  Aw that sucks. Hope you feel better soon!  12 weeks is a long time to heal a small fracture, though. I am sure you will be just fine for the big day!  Lots of ice and rest between now and then!

Just rest and stay off that foot as much as you can now so that it will be nice and healed by then. You should be fine!!

@March1stBride:  I’m so sorry! But you really will be fine. If it isnt a weight bearing bone, you will be more than fine! It should not take more than six weeks to be totally healed so by 12 weeks you will be dancing up a storm.

@March1stBride:  So sorry to hear that. If it makes you feel better 2 days before my wedding I broke out in hives. I had them all over, my neck and even my eye lids. I was a mess. I have never had hives bofore and am pretty sure it was bc I stressed myself out. Just remember to take a deep breath and focus your attention on marrying your love. The actual commitment, not all the other wedding stuff!  🙂

That sucks, but I agree with the PPs. Follow the doctors orders strictly eat healthy and you ‘ll heal in no time!

That sucks!! But you have 12 weeks still, so don’t stress. I broke one of my foot bones a few summers ago and wore an air cast boot for 9 weeks. You should be fine by 12, especially if it’s not a weight bone. And those boots are pretty damn comfy so even if you are still in it by the wedding, you shouldn’t be too slowed down by your injury. I went to an outdoor concert with my sister only two weeks after breaking it and walked all around the lake and grounds and I was fine. Those boots are miracles! Good luck.

@March1stBride:  12 weeks is a good amount of time to heal a small fracture like that. Follow your Doctor’s instructions very carefully, eat well, and get lots of rest. I’m sure you’ll be feeling much better by the time the wedding arrives.

@March1stBride:  12 weeks will be more than enough time 🙂 My dad had major ankle surgery, and after 12 weeks he was walking and in a normal shoe, so the fact you have a small break I have no doubts you will be back to normal by your wedding. Try not to stress too much. Stress can cause a whole other mess of problems.

That sucks!  But I think you will be just fine!

I had a friend who broke her ankle in December and needed surgery and metal rods put into her foot.  She was walking around fine in March!

I say sue Jillian Michaels and call David Tutera! LOL… no, I’m joking – hope I gave you a bit of a laugh. 😉

 

I’m so sorry for you! I would be freaking out too! Lots of rest and cuddles with the FI, and maybe a little fun… what about decorating your boot? Go all out sparkles and lace, “I’m the bride” or “I do” or “Just Married”? Glitter is a wonderful thing! 🙂   Plus, if you use acrylic paint or sticky crystals, it can be removed or painted over. Just something silly and fun to brighten your mood!

 

Feel better soon! 🙂

if it’s fine now, it should still be fine in 12 weeks.
