I fractured my tibia spirally in January 2015 and took a long long time to recover. Last week I did my first really long walk since my break, on quite uneven ground and up and down hills. I felt a tremendous sense of achievement doing this and want to encourage you all. I know how bleak and despairing you can feel when you are going through rehab but do keep focussing on the light at the end of a very very dark tunnel! Good luck all.

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
