Transverse, comminuted distal tibial fracture 4m ago. Surgery was carried out wid plates. Can walk wid brace, uneven gait. Will i b abl 2 walk properly?

Hoffa syndrome : I want to thank you for teaching me something new. Avoid streching the knee, running. Need to rest, physical therapy, ultrasound therapy, antinflamatory meds.
