Comment : tibial plateau fx survivor
Posted by Chris Weitz on Tue 5:07pm 5 October 2010


Hi Alison, Hope you are feeling better. Our stories are almost identical. 6 years ago I was playing with my choc lab and he hit me from the side and resulted in a tibial plateau fracture. Had surgery with 2 screws and some bone from my hip to repair the damage. I was 30 when it happened and it was about 10 weeks till I was allowed to bear weight. The best thing you can do is keep that joint moving. Try hard(it hurts)but get your range of motion back before you are allowed to walk. It makes a huge difference. I'm not going to sugar coat it, my knee has never been the same. Some days are better than others,but I don't let it keep me from doing the things I love. You just have to be determined to regain your independece. I wish all the best for you!! PS: my OS wasn't really helpful with information. You can find out alot about tibial plateau fx from the internet as well as exercises you can do to keep your quad muscle in shape while you are unable to walk.Best wishes:)
