 Re: metal rod and screws question
Nicola Stan    6:29am Apr 6 2019

Hi Joleen, I am sorry to hear about your fracture, I hope you have a degree of comfort and healing. I broke my tib and fib approx 8 months ago and went / going through some physical feelings you describe. The soft tissue healing was quite confusing, I always worried about the actual bones, not realising that soft tissue takes as much time to heal also. I had not a lot of feeling in my leg and foot, numbness as you describe. I'm happy to report that my feeling came back slowly and I believe it or not but tickling my leg and foot helped. I jumped up for joy the first time I actually 'felt' being tickled. I also couldn't feel heat or coldness on part of my leg also, this has also returned. Putting my leg in hot /cold water helped with my soft tissue healing as also did an electric duvet. I sort of developed a sensory recovery plan. All the best for your recovery and each and every person is individual in their recovery. My leg decided to be a slow healer!!!! Take care Nicky x
