 Re: How long to Heal???

I can't comment on hardware because my tib/fib spiral fracture was treated by a succession of casts but it did take nearly 9 months to heal. Seemed to get its act together all at once after about 8 months as they were on the verge of doing more when the X ray showed 95% healing. Good luck. I think we take longer to heal as we age unfortunately!

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
