/ Injured walker in Torridon 12th Jan
I just wanted to say thanks to everyone I met on my 2-hr hobble back to the Ling hut, as you noticed me hobbling and made sure I had enough bandages, painkillers, etc before you walked on. I have to say, a combination of walking poles and co-codamol does wonders! Your concern and offers of first-aid kit were greatly appreciated.
It turns out I'd torn a tendon and a ligament in my ankle, and it's going to take a while to recover, which means I'm out of the hiking game for a wee bit, but at least I didn't break any bones, and I got back safely.
Nice to hear there are still some genuinely nice folk out there.
Hang in there, you'll be back out soon enough, just don't rush it :)
Hard lucky, Zoe, hope you're healing well. Good to know there's help out there!
Take your time, do the physio, and you'll make a full recovery. The months will pass surprisingly quickly...
