 Re: Fracture clinic, Friday: no surgery, leg set in full leg cast

Very similar experience to yours. Tib and fib fractured distally in Jan 2015. Long leg cast for 6 weeks during which I hopped everywhere using a frame for support. The weight of the cast and the general discomfort very difficult to deal with. At 6 weeks post fracture went into a Sarmiento cast to the knee so at least I could bend the leg a bit but then healing hit a stumbling block. It took until end of July to come out of a succession of casts. Then I had to wear an air cast boot till 22 October but was using a cane for the remainder of 2015. It is a long journey, tiring, frustrating and emotionally draining but I got back to pretty much normal activity the following year, although I lost my husband so that was very hard to deal with. Now I am driving, walking any distance and riding again so you will get there. Have fortitude and visit this site often for advice and support. It got me through some very black times.

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
