 Re: Going back to work

It really depends on the type of work you do, if you can manage to do desk work you can go back right away. When I broke my leg (open comminuted tibia and fibula break) in 2019, I was back at work in less than three weeks after the surgery to install an IM Rod and nails. And it would have been 2 weeks if I hadnít had to wait for a doctorís note. But my job is an office job on a computer, if I had a job that required a lot of mobility no way would I have been able to go back to work so soon.

If you do need to be super mobile at your job I would say 3 to 6 months till you are back depending on break severity and your pain tolerance. Just listen to your body and donít push too hard or you will have a set back. :(

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
