I absolutely agree. You’re going to have ups, downs, and odd plateaus where nothing seems to be getting better. I’m 8 months into recovery. I wasn’t full weight bearing until 3 months. If your doctor is happy with your progress, then accept that as a blessing bc the tibia is a difficult bone to heal. The bone didn’t even show signs of healing until the third month. And I didn’t realize how broken I was until I attempted to walk on it. But it slowly gets better. Sloooooooooooowly.... accept where you are right now. Like, be okay with it. You didn’t lose your leg! Hallelujah and amen!
Jay, YES! Get one screw or from the bottom and one from the top. Leave two in! I felt improvement the day of surgery even though it was painful. It wasn’t as “odd feeling” as having the nail protrude from my skin.
