 Fracture clinic yesterday: new year, new cast, no bone growth yet.
Leeís-busted-leg    2:08am Dec 28 2018

Hello all of you. I had my latest fracture clinic appointment yesterday. X-rays showed that there is no bone growth yet at the fracture sites which is disappointing to say the least. Before the appointment Iíd dared to hope that there would be and when the consultant told me there wasnít it left me feeling a little disappointed to say the least.
They took my old cast off and replaced it with a new full leg cast. Itís fibreglass and runs from my toes all the way up to my inner thigh/crotch. This is the most disappointing part - Iíd got my hopes up for a shorter cast below my knee. Maybe Iím getting too far ahead of myself.
Iím in this new cast for at least a month maybe longer i.e. until there is bone growth.
Iím also still non-weight bearing on my crutches.
When they took my old cast off I saw the state of my leg: itís shrunk loads due to muscles not being used and loosing all their tone and mass.
Itís going to be along road back to full fitness after I get out of plaster.
Wishing you all a happy and healing 2019.

Broken tibia and fibula 16th Nov, full leg cast 23 Nov for 2-3 months
