 Re: They did

Sorry to hear of your fracture. I broke my tib and fib spirally and distally in January 2015 and was in casts for the next seven or so months. Slow to heal but it did, eventually, and I am glad now that I gave the body the chance to sort itself out rather than having hardware.
It can be a long and frustrating journey but there is light at the end of the tunnel. I am pretty much back to what I could do before the break although there was a time when I thought I would never walk again. Keep us posted.

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
