 Re: gunshot wound, fractured tibia and fibula
dcb    4:13pm Jul 25 2017

Hi Vito,

Sympathies. Looks to me like they've done a good job of aligning most of the bone fragments - should heal well. The only query is joint alignment at the bottom and I can't tell from this x-ray how good that is. Ask about it.

No reason you shouldn't be able to run again once it's healed properly, but that will take time. At the moment you need to rest, eat healthily and let your body get on with healing. make sure you get enough calcium and particularly vitamin D.

Good luck!

Fibula Fx lat. malleolus Weber B 12 June 2015
ORIF plate 18 June. Cast problems (allodynia) so boot from 25th but NWB.
25 July start PWB in boot, 7 Aug PWB without boot. 14th Aug few steps FWB.
9 Sept 10-steps jog 25 Sept: PT says go run!
