 Swelling from tibia fracture at 4 months
davo p    9:56am Aug 12 2010

It's been almost 4 months since my compound Tib/fib fracture, I have the IM Rod.

Has anyone had substantial swelling at this point in recovery? What is best way to reduce swelling, as my PT says this swelling is hindering my ability to walk well. I elevate & ice & do the PT excercises which helps but there is still substantial swelling on a daily basis. Maybe it takes time to work out the scar tissue, muscles to heal, etc.

Anyone with similar experiences or advice?

Thx
