Prayers up, indeed, and I can identify as well. Had a bone cyst and broke my femur twice before I was 14.
The first time was only hairline fracture, so 2 months in body cast only.
The second time (three years later) was a complete break ... 5 weeks in hospital with pin thru knee, then another 7 weeks in body cast. Then re-learning to walk again.
Tutor came to house so I could keep up with my studies. Really awful going to bathroom. Had to use bedpan the whole time. Embarrassing.
