 Re: Tibia and Fibula Spiral Fracture
Pauline M Hall    5:41am Jan 4 2018

Tib/Fib spiral fracture beginning of Jan 2015. But I was treated by a succession of casts (6 in all I think) rather than hardware. So my experience probably won't be of much help but swelling takes forever to go. My OS told me my foot and ankle would never look quite as they did before the break and he was right. But, after much PT and patient working away at stiffness etc as well as keeping a strong focused mental attitude I am pretty much back to where I was pre fracture.
There is loads of help and sympathy on this forum. Keep visiting and the best of luck for your full recovery.

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
