Posted by SW on Tue 10:13pm 26 April 2016
Hi tam! I broke my tibia & fibula snowboarding exactly one month ago. Had emergency surgery the same night to insert an IM rod and screws in my tibia. I am still no weight bearing, using crutches to get around. They told me 6-8 weeks post op before I can start trying to walk. I'm also an active person normally and am getting pretty stir crazy (it's my right leg, so I can't even drive myself). The first two weeks were definitely the most painful for me. Now I have relatively no pain- just discomfort. The worst part now is being dependent on my boyfriend to drive me everywhere and carry things for me. The emotional strain is hard. Not sure if you had surgery or not, but if you're two weeks out I'd say the worst physical pain is probably over!
