Helen_T : Broken R tibia plateau - after 32 years safe snow skiing!
Diary entry posted Tue 8:04am 29 March 2016

So glad I have found this site. I broke my R Tibia in 3 places on 9th March, while skiing in France. I have a plate, 3 pins and numerous screws. Spent a week in Albertville hospital, interesting as never spent more than 1 day in hospital and never broken anything. Also I don't speak much French and most of staff didn't speak much English.
Currently I have to keep my leg straight so mainly bed bound, thankfully no plaster. Would be great to hear from anyone with similar and how your recovery went!
Do I rest, do I get into the wheelchair and move around?
What does anyone suggest to rub on the wound area, it quite bruised looking - 26 stitches out.
What helps with sleep? I don't sleep for more than 2 hours at a time.
Otherwise I am positive and remain upbeat!
