 Re: Fracture/broken leg interview
Mohit Jangid    2:43am May 3 2017

Hi, I have been NWB for the past 8 weeks. For the first six weeks, I was using a walker. It does have its limitation like you cant use the stairs so I stayed in my room most of the times on first floor. After my surgery, I had a discussion with OS about using crutches or walker. He said It was totally upto me but he'd prefer if I use walker as it is more safe specially for the first 2-3 weeks post OP. he said I could use crutches if I want after 3 weeks. I never used crutches even after 3 weeks as they hurt and you can lose control.
Recently doctor put me in Patella Tendon Brace which is really helpful in walking.

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
