 Re: Tibia not healing
Pauline M Hall    2:07am Nov 18 2018

I fractured my tibia in Jan 2015 and took a long time to heal. My injury was treated with a succession of casts though and I had no metal work. I got very down and wondered if I would ever heal. After five months, in June, I was sent for a CT scan instead of the usual X ray. This revealed more detail and showed that I was in fact healing. At the end of July the last cast came off and I graduated into an aircast boot for the following 3 months. I finally came out of all leg support at the end of October. So there is light at the end of the tunnel. I do hope you are making progress but can empathise with your frustration and despair.

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
