 2nd opinion for broken tibia
jaxson00    4:44pm Dec 30 2019

I'm a 19 year old male with no previous bone fractures or serious injuries. On December 27th I broke my tibia and fibula completely in half during a soccer game. I wasn't wearing shin pads and the middle of my right shin was hit by another player's knee and broke. In the er my leg was xrayed and my tibia set back in place. I was told by the orthapedic doctor at the hospital that my broken leg would not need surgery.

I'm currently wondering if i need a second opinion? After doing research online and looking through this forum it seems like a lot of ppl with tib/fib breaks have had surgery on their tibia with a rod and no surgery on the fibula. While my doctor said i didn't need surgery it seems like the common route for this type of injury. my leg is currently in a cast to my hip and i have it on for 4 weeks maybe longer. should i get a second opinion on surgery?
