Depends

A compound fracture is a serious fracture. Depending on the amount of trauma to other surrounding tissues, any complications and other such issues, the aching could be for several days to several weeks. Pain is different for each person and each fracture. If concern, see your doctor and get re-evaluated.

What is the post-surgery treatment for a compound fracture of the tibia?

Casting and therapy

Open-uri20121029-32573-fctk7d
Compound fracture of your tibia requiring surgery likely means you had teel rod/plates and screws to stabilize the tibia. After surgery, you may need casting, possible a removable cast. non-weight-bearing (NO Walking on that leg) for several weeks, then partial wt bearing etc..Physically therapy is almost always recommended during this process. Ask questions and follow doc's advice. Good luck

What is the typical healing time for a compound fracture of the tibia and fibula?

Unpredictable

Blood
The healing time is very dependent on the amount of soft tissue damage that occurs at the time of the fracture. Compound fractures are those that have an opening in the skin associated with them, but it's not the opening but rather the amount of skin, tissue and bone loss as well as possible injuries to blood vessels and nerves that determines the time for healing

2006 left me with a compound fracture of the right Femur.The rod is stainless steel and was special ordered for size. and 3 pins. What does it weigh?

Similar to tibia

Forearm_fractures
Sorry just answered a very similar question regarding the weight of a titanium tibial rod(~12 ounces). So a stainless steel rod which is likely 2-6cm.longer( depending on how tall u are)w/3 interlocking screws may weigh 16 ounces( give or take 2-3 ounces).Special ordered?( for your length or width of femur-- unusual in compound=open fxs.)Possibly u meant comminuted( 'shattered')? Hope that helps!

It could be potentially very dangerous specially if the fracture is contaminated by outside material.it could get infected with severte consequences.Every open fracture should be cleaned,debrided if necessary and dressed.Antibiotics is an option depending upon the degree on contamination.
