 Re: Broken tibia and fibula 8 weeks post surgery healing progress
Pauline M Hall    2:11pm Apr 22 2017

Broke my tibia distally on Jan 22nd 2015 and finally came out of the sixth cast in July of that year. There was very slow healing for many weeks but, finally, a CT was done instead of Xray and that showed more healing had taken place than the Xray had implied.
I had no pain either and was in despair that my leg would ever heal. After a further three months in the aircast boot and loads of PT and patience I am now walking fine. Courage!!

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
