 Re: First broken bones age 30 - tibia and fibula.

I'm afraid that yes, you'll be in a long leg cast for about three months, because they need to immobilise the joint below (ankle) and above (knee) the breaks in order to immobilise the bones properly so they can heal.

I didn't have to go through that as I had a plate placed on my broken fibula. But others here HAVE had to cope with it and should be able to share their tips.

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!
