 Re: 2nd opinion for broken tibia
jaxson00    1:56pm Jan 3 2020

hey everyone! thanks so much for all the messages. i appreciate them all.

today i had a second opinion with another orthopedic surgeon in my town. she took xrays and they showed that my tibia hadn't moved. since it was set properly she said it wasn't a bad idea to keep my leg casted and see if both breaks can heal on their own. however she didn't like the angle of my cast so she had it cut off and recasted my leg. that part was painful and she wrote a new prescription for codeine.

i'm at home now but have to see her once a week to get my leg xrayed for the next 4 weeks. is this a usual thing to do? i think i chose the right choice for treatment since both doctors i've seen said surgery isn't necessary even though it's a bad break, and it can heal naturally.

thanks again for the comments!
