 Broken Fibula - Leg brace or cast?
Michael Monaghan    2:50am May 5 2019


I fractured my fibula 3 weeks ago playing football. I went to see a doctor who told me it was muscle damage and sent me for an ultrasound which wasnít until a few days go. It showed up on the ultrasound that I had an oblique fracture high up in my fibula.
The doctor put me in a leg brace similar to one for knee injuries and said there is no point immobilising my leg in a cast for 6 weeks as I have been walking on the injury for nearly 3 weeks.

Iím just wondering has anyone had anything similar?
I havenít seen people put in a leg brace when breaking their leg, itís normally always a cast?

Thanks for your help.
