Comment : Re: Tib/Fib fracture
Posted by Jan G on Sat 8:54pm 16 September 2006


Hi John,

I just found your message today. Your fracture is a bit different from my own, since I only broke the smaller bone, the fibula. Many times when people break both bones, the OS doesn't even treat the fibula, since it bears about 10% of your weight. But recovering from a Tib/Fib fracture will probably take a bit more time. The best bet is to listen your to doctor. You definitely will want to ask your doctor about physical therapy to help regain some of the movement and strength you once had.

Have you visited the Discussion forum here? There are probably more people who have experienced the same kind of fracture who read that forum regularly.

Good luck and quick healing!
-Jan
