 Re: Broken rib & fib - pressure when stand up

Hello LH,

I too broke my Tibia and Fibula (back in March). I was operated on and discharged the following day without a cast. Yes. I felt immense pressure on my leg whenever I got up on my crutches to go to the washroom or when moving to another room. This will get better with time. It's going to feel awful for 2 to 3 weeks before you notice improvements. But like some of the others that have posted, each of us experience this injury differently.

I am going back to the orthopedist Wednesday for my 6 week post-op appointment. Hoping to get some good news! I was told not to put any weight on my leg for the first 6 weeks after surgery. Hoping to start partial weight bearing and physio shortly.


Mike
