Mike,this is an injury that is going to take lotts a time. I too slipped and fell on a marble stairway on Mar 6th 2 days after my 62nd birthday. I am active and very healthy. I too have a Tbia plateau fracture with plate and screws. THis is not a common break. IT is a bad one. We woulda been better off breaking our tib in the middle of the leg. Time wise,i was in the hospital 3 days. home nwb maybe 6 weeks.was in a walker eleven weeks and on a cane maybe about a week 10 days. I am in therapy twice a week and cant walk a long distance. i always biked.i recently traded my 2 wheel bike for a 3 wheeler because of the fear of injurying my leg. still having trouble with walking without a stiff leg. please keep me posted its been 15 weeks for me. we both have a rare injury according to my surgeon and therapists. please keep me posted. I live in iowa and love the summers but am restricted as what i can do and so will you for sometime. thanks,mike
