If you are having difficulty lifting your leg or foot, it could be a sign of nerve damage. There is a nerve close to the fibula which helps lift the foot and turn it out. If it isn't working properly it can result in "foot drop". Deconditioning can also give a "heavy" feeling. ...Read more
I broke my leg both tibia and fibula and now its a non union and still its not healing what should I do?
If someone suffered a growth plate fracture in the fibula of a leg and it led to stunted growth, could that mean the tibia could "outgrow" the fibula?
Fibula fx: More likely if it indeed led to stunted growth that the lack of growth of the fibula held back appropriate growth of the tibia and that led to the growth problems. Your fibula usually does not determine height because it is a non-weight bearing bone, but in that instance it could have effect on height. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I got a real bad tibia/fibula break and got a metal brace on my leg had it for three months how long before i probably be able to walk again?
Broken fibula & tibia in 99. Leg length discrepancy of 1.5" but only tibia is short. Fibula bowing. Problems feet up. Pursue Taylor spatial frame?
Other options?: You're 30 and no longer growing, problem won't get worse. A 3/4" heel lift on your shorter leg may resolve most issues. If not, surgery to lengthen the short tibia with external device is possible but results may not be worth the effort to get there. You really need to discuss with orthopedics your current issues with shorter leg and if they will resolve with surgery. ...Read more

I had surgery for a fractured tibia and fibula with IM nail. In a boot now and my leg feels like jelly and heavy. Is this normal?
When surgery done?: The first question I have is, how long has it been since surgery? There are a couple of concerns if the injury was recent. You could have a deep vein clot. That's serious and you would need eval for that right away. The other possibility is nerve injury or maybe a regional block was done? You should have a set of post op instructions. Read that and then contact your ortho doc, discuss what to do. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
