 4 months after compound fx of tib/fib....story so far
Nilesh Gonsalves (117.204.163.---)   7:43am Nov 12 2010

I had a compound fracture of tibia & fibula while playing football (soccer) on 11th July 2010 (had my 4th month birthday yesterday, which incidentally was also my moms 67th birthday) & am at home since then with a simple nail inserted in my tibia bone, which does not have any screws.

A couple of days back, I had my digital x ray taken & I am very happy to share the news that my bone growth process is going on well (thanks to the almighty & all well wishers)

My OS did not put a plaster on me this time & has asked me to do basic knee exercises & meet him on coming monday, wherein he will now put a knee length plaster & hopefully in 2 weeks time I can move to the boot & start partial weight bearing.

11/7/10 - Compound fracture of tibia & fibula. Surgery for insertion of simple nail in tibia without interlocking screws
22/7/10 - 22/8/10 - Hard cast with wound dressing thrice a week
23/8/10 - Plaster cast above knee...no bone growth(currently in cast)
9/10/10 - Digital x ray taken...callus formation started
15/10/10 - Homeopathic medicines intake started
10/11/10 - Digital x - ray after 4 months...bone growth progressing well
