Hello Annette,

I think what may help isnít thinking what one should I do, but rather what option would I absolutely not want to do. Neither option is very appealing, but if you look at it from what one you DONíT want to do sometimes that makes it easier.

Also itís a matter of how soon do you want to walk, if you can be patient you can go without surgery and start weight bearing and see how that goes. This option is safer, but theirs still a risk of a non-union or that the bone will heal in the wrong position even with weight bearing. Also without surgery it will take longer for the bone to heal. The surgery route has its own risk, but their much more minor, and you know for sure that the bone will heal. A rod will make weight bearing much easier compared to a plate, but a plate is less invasive. However, a plate will not be very supportive once you start weight bearing.

So which of the options do you really not want to do?
