 fracture healing question
Embonious    2:46am Jan 24 2019

Hi all, I went this Tuesday for my week 20 checkup, and while my tibia is healing well, the fibula is still slow.
I'm still pretty atrophied in the thigh of my broken leg, despite rehab and 100% weight bearing for the past 3, nearly 4 weeks. I am seeing small improvements, however. I'm curious if anyone can share their healing experience at this point- how long did it take you to go from semi functional hobbling to fully functional walking? How long until you were back in public life? I can go out with crutches for safety, but still feel the stress of being injured, am still really slow, and still have the swelling and pain after any expedition into the world.
