 Re: 2nd ortho visit update

Casts versus surgery is an issue that very much depends on the individual and the nature and type of break I think. I was advised to go down the cast route and, although I then spent a frustrating nine months with various accoutrements on my leg, I think it was the right decision. Sometimes hardware causes problems down the line, though by no means always. Anyway the main thing is that your trajectory is upwards. Glad to hear that. Nobody asked to sign my casts, even though I had several in all but quite a few people stared at my leg which I found rather rude!!

20 weeks with broken tib /fib! Slow healing. Casts (5)
Week 26 Tibia healed 50% aircast
Week 33 Tibia 95% healed so boot outdoors and cane no boot indoors
Wk 36 Start PT
Week 39 Ditch boot.
Wk 43 Driving and normal trainers
Wk 46 Discharged
