 Tib/fib open compound fracture IM Nail
Jared Kennedy (70.35.86.---)   1:46pm Oct 27 2018

So, I broke my tibial and fibula on a Polaris(atv/4wheeler) July 21st, 2018. Since it was an open fracture, the night of he injury I had an open reduction EXTERNAL fixation to clean the area. I had ORIF(open reduction internal fixation) via Intramedullary Nail on July 23rd. The days before my IM Nail I was given antibiotics to kill germs/prevent infections. Itís a little over 3 months today as Iím writing this and I still havenít been giving the clear for walking. As well as everyone knows in this forum, finding specific examples of other peopleís injures is almost impossible to find on google so I was wondering if other people are having this problem. Iím an 18 year old male, perfectly health, I donít smoke.
Thank You,
