 Re: Broke Tibul & Fibula- Underwent Surgery but no Cast
MGC    12:24pm Jul 18 2017

I had an open tib/fib break 9 weeks ago. I had the titanium rod nailed into my tibia and it was attatched with 2 screws below the knee and 2 screws above the ankle. With this rod attached at the top and bottom, the load bypasses the break area and so I was 100 weight bearing right after surgery with no cast. My break was not healing as of my 6 week check up, but I am walking pretty normal now except for some limping due to knee pain from the operation.

Now the fibula is a whole other story. The top and bottom sections were left hanging by the surgeon and I'm not even sure if he cares if they ever heal. I will be curious over time if the 2 ends find each other and marry agian.

5-17-17 Open tib&fib fracture. IM rod 4 screws. FWB
6-5-17 stitches removed
6-28-17 started Exogen UT
