 Re: Spiral fractures tibia and fibula-cast versus surgery?
Pauline M Hall    7:09am Sep 15 2018

I had a spiral tib/fib fracture at the beginning of 2015. My fracture was treated conservatively with a succession of casts for some months. I finally came out of the casts in July and into an aircast boot. I jettisoned that at the end of October and started to walk in supportive shoes. It was a long haul but I feel was the right decision. Hardware brings its own problems and I think you need to weigh up carefully the pros and cons of various treatment regimens.
Good luck.

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
