 Re: Third week of healing, still pretty painful
Pauline M Hall    4:56am Feb 10 2018

I sustained a spiral fx of tib and fib in Jan 2015 and had a succession of casts for nearly nine months. Pain did decrease but I had some aching and soreness for at least 18 months. Even now, three years down the line, I experience twinges when I do something different, like walking up ad down a gradient.
I suspect I will never entirely go back to how I was before. My OS said my foot and ankle area would never look as they did before the fx but I am able to lead the life I want. I can walk, drive, ride a horse and do gardening and I never thought I would again. Courage! It will get better but will probably take some time yet.

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
