 PTB- Non Weight Bearing
Mohit Jangid (47.9.131.---)   10:27pm Apr 27 2017

Hi , I broke my tibia and fibula in a cliff jumping accident. I know it sounds horrible and cant even begin to think how I felt that night. I had IM Nail surgery to put the things together as It was an open fracture. It has been almost 7and half weeks since the surgery and I'm still NWB. On my last visit, doctor put me in PTB - Patella Tendon Brace so that I could walk without putting any weight on my injured leg for another 6 weeks.
I have been reading on the recovery period and I found out that generally OS suggests PWB after 6 weeks to accelerate the bone healing. I want to know if NWB is okay for another 6 weeks and It will not have a negative impact on my bone healing.

March 4th,17 Night - broke my left tibia, fibula (shin bone in the middle) due to fall
March 6th,17 Morning - Surgery, IM Nail insertion in tibia, x ray showed good alignement
March 23rd,17 - Stiches removed
April 23rh,17 - PTB suggested for another 6 weeks
