Comment : compound tibia and fibula
Posted by amcl on Fri 6:18am 15 July 2016
Been reading all your posts with interest recently broke my tibia and fibia and shattered my ankle with tibia being an open fracture exiting around heel area.Was immediately operated on with Xfix frame fitted with further surgery and plastic surge 5 days later. Subsequently spent 2 weeks hospitalised with total non weight bearing crutches for 6 weeks.
Recently been given boot to wear instructed to partial weight bear for further 6 weeks and told recovery may be 6 to 8 months in total.
Was wondering if anybody could advise about my foot being limp and hanging below my ankle. will this began to recover as muscle atrophy subsides and does walking around in boot help this ?
