Bill_Z : Broken tibial plateau recovery at 31 years old
Diary entry posted Mon 7:30pm 28 September 2009

I broke my leg on July 4th (2009) while riding with family at a party. I wiped pretty hard and broke my tibial plateau. Needed open reduction surgery. The OS put in 2 steel plates and 13 screws to put my bone back together. At week 10 I am able to put 120 pounds on the leg that is healing. I guess I am making a remarkable recovery considering other peoples' experiences. ROM (range of motion) was at 95 degrees by week 2. The physical recovery has been perfect. The mental toll has taken its full cut for sure.
