Comment : Broken Fib
Posted by Tina on Sat 2:54am 7 May 2005
I read your diary with interest, and empathy! I fell down just two stairs on 2nd March and broke my fib quite badly, plus knocked a lump off the end of the tib and dislocated my ankle! I am finding it very frustrating as I am not allowed to weight-bear and yet both the ladies I met in hospital are now able to start walking. I have a plate and six screws in the fib and a screw through the end of the tib. I was initially told I would have the cast off in six weeks, but when I went back the SHO said at least another four weeks, and after reading some of the postings on this site, I'm not sure what to expect at all! I was told I have torn ligaments as well, so that will make things harder to walk again, but am longing to get walking. This is so frustrating! Any tips?
What stage of recovery are you at now?
