 Re: Been a while, desperate for help after recovery

Wow! We could be twins! I broke my right leg May 2017, and then in March 2019 I broke my left leg. Both were tibia and fibula fractures. The first was a tibial plateau fracture that needed a plate and multiple screws installed. The second fracture was an open comminuted fracture that needed an IM Rod and nails.

My first fracture healed fine and although the hardware was bugging me I was still able to do a lot of things. But the more recent fracture, is the fracture from HELL! Itís been over a year, and after two surgeries the bone is still not healed (and yes I am STILL in PT), plus it has a bone infection, and causes me pain constantly when I walk. I am hoping that in June or July I can have surgery to remove the rod and nails, that will allow the doctor to get rid of the bone infection and do a bone graft if necessary. From their I hope the pain dissipates. Because at this point in order to walk anywhere without pain I am going to need an electric scooter! O_o

5/13/2017 = Right Tibia and Fibula Plateau Fractures
6/7/2017 = Surgery to Insert Metal Plate and Screws
3/15/2019 = Left Tibia and Fibula Comminuted Fractures
3/18/2019 = Surgery to Insert IM Rod and Nails
9/4/2019 = Surgery to remove Nails
