Comment : Re: Tib/Fib Compound fract from horse kick
Posted by louise on Thu 4:54am 31 July 2008
i'm contacting you because i've got the same injury! a horse tried to kick my horse whilst i was riding and got me mid shin, the horse that kicked was some distance away and it was a massive force. i had an open fracture of the tib/fib and got taken in air ambulance. that night they put an external fixator on, 3 pins above, 2 below and gave me abs but 5days later i went back to theatre and had plates put in. its been 4 months since it happened and i've still got terrible limp and a large fracture gap to heal still. Just wondering how are you doing?? i started riding my horse again but too painful at moment!!
