While the doctors and nurses were great (thanks NHS!), we were still concerned about how to deal with everything, especially once we returned home and were left to our own devices. Everything from how to sleep correctly to handling medication responsibly to gradually increasing pressure on a broken leg was a concern, because it was all new to us.
I couldn't find any comprehensible help online until a keyword search on Google and Amazon UK found this book. This is not a medical textbook, and it is not aimed at medical professionals - instead, it is written in plain English and is full of practical information for people who don't see broken bones as just another day at the office.
We were able to arrange the suggested bathroom upgrades, which has helped to minimise any discomfort and annoyance at loss of independence. My partner is also happy to be able to measure her milestones against a real person's experience, so she is not pressuring herself to do more than necessary to "speed up her recovery".
This is a fairly niche market, but if you find yourself with a broken tibia, or you are caring for someone with a broken tibia, then this is the book for you. Recommended.
