Tib/fib spiral frac 15 yrs ago @ 22yrs old, with Ti rod.  Still pain at frac site. Any suggestions?

See ortho specialist: Chronic pain that persists after full healing may be due to nerve damage, scar tissue, or in your situation, a foreign body reaction to the rod. This certainly deserves discussion with your orthopedic surgeon. With careful evaluation, the likely source of pain can be diagnosed. If the rod has a role, consideration might even be given as to whether it is still needed. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Do broken tib/fib heal completely&gain previous strength and reliability to withstand the stress as before?hw long it take?or there's a fault point?

Good ?: For the most part after lots of good therapy in 8-12 weeks depending on the break and how it was repaired most of the fractures are healed and strong. The bones are healed it is the muscles that are still healing in therapy and coming back. The bones should be good as new and a as reliable as before the break in almost all cases, without a "fault point" of weakness . ...Read more

Fell down stairs, broke tib/fib, foot hanging backwards, 2 plates & 10 screws, 1 year later plates and screws removed, told i can never run again. Why?

Varies: I would not hesitate to get a follow up appointment and specifically answer that question. Presumably if your plates and screws have been removed your fractures are healed. One of the more common reasons we might tell the patient that is if they have quite a bit of post traumatic arthritis on their follow up X-ray and want to try to protect the joint. ...Read more
