 Re: New here- broken tibia and fibula
Kasia    1:37pm Nov 5 2017

Dear Karen!

Lots of sympathies!!!

I gone through the same thing almost 11 months ago when I severly broke my tibia and fibula climbing in a gym (bouldering). I fell on a thick matress and have no idea how I ended up with an open fracture! My leg was operated on right away and now I have a rod and and 4 screws. The hardware will be all taken out at the end of this year (12 months after the original surgery).

First few weeks are the hardest. You should rest a lot with your leg elevated (reduces swelling) and eat healthy.

If you have any questions I will be happy to share my experience.

Take care,
Kasia
