 Re: Broke my tib/fib
Pauline M Hall    2:16pm Apr 22 2017

Usually the leg is cast in a white backslab for the first week to allow for swelling. Then a more fetching coloured cast is allowed. I went through virtually the entire colour spectrum with my succession of casts. Good luck with the healing process.

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
