 Re: Broken Fibula - Leg brace or cast?
SMM    9:07am May 5 2019

Hi Michael,

Really sorry to hear about your injury. How are you? How are you coping? My last leg break was to the fibula, and I learned that the fibula does not bear much weight, so some types of fractures to that bone can heal without casting. Non-weight bearing for a month or so and rest may be sufficient. My break was near the ankle and without immobilization might have caused damage to the ankle, so I was treated in a cast. With your oblique fracture, I am assuming your dr. checked soft tissue damage and said that did not need casting?

Best wishes,
Matt
