Comment : Thanks Richard!

Hi, I broke my Tibia and Fibula on the 7th May playing football, I'm a goalkeeper but somehow managed to find myself involved in a tackle on the edge of my box. I just got to the ball before the forward and the proceeded to follow through and wrap my shin around the bottom of his foot. I had the same op as you Richard with the nail down the tibia and the screws. It's now 14th June and I'm really pleased with how quickly my leg has settled down. I was particularly encouraged by your story Richard as you seem to describe your symptomns and recovery very similar to how mine has gone. It's 3 weeks today until I go on holiday to Cyprus which will take me up to 9 weeks post op and it's my aim to at the very least only have 1 crutch by then (hope i'm not being too optimistic).
