A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more

TREAT THE CRPS: The CRPS has priority; it can be life changing. You should be in some type of pain clinic with multiple specialists well versed in CRPS tx. You may need another surgery for the non-union, but there is controversy if surgery should be done with active CRPS. Maybe a bone stimulator would help. I don't think WB right now is a good idea. Good luck! ...Read more

If the articular surface was uninjured, you should regain normal walking cadence, but it could take several months as distal tibia fractures are slow to heal. It's hard to say without seeing the x-rays. ...Read more
