Had a surgical repair to my right leg due to a fracture to my tibia and fibula, many screws, 6" plate.What does recovery look like over time?

6 + weeks: A simple fracture may heal as early as 6 weeks, but more complex fractures of the leg may take many months to heal. Your orthopedic surgeon will take xrays to evaluate healing and is the best person to tell you how long it might take. Typically you are non weight bearing during the early phases of healing. ...Read more

Hello. My 10 year old son had an X-ray today and was diagnosed with a chipped tibia. Although the chip is very small, shouldn't they splint his leg?

Hello. My 10 year old son had an X-ray today and was diagnosed with a chipped tibia. Although the chip is very small, shouldn't they splint his leg?

Hard to say: A simple chip is an injury that may not cause any instability or compromise the function of the bone.Without having the benefit of the full history, exam and x-ray findings it is inappropriate to second guess someone who has that data. If you would feel better, get a second hands on opinion or get an over the counter splint and do it yourself. ...Read more

I've lower back pain which is now raidiating down my right leg to toes (tingly). X-ray & bloods clear doc thinks bulging disc . What's the tingling?

I've lower back pain which is now raidiating down my right leg to toes (tingly). X-ray & bloods clear doc thinks bulging disc . What's the tingling?

Nerve irritation: In this case, one of your nerve roots is likely irritated by the bulging disc. The disc may have a tear and release chemical signals that will irritate a nearby nerve root, or even intermittently make contact and compress the root. The resultant stray signals from the root is the tingling. No need to see doctor unless tingling gets painful or leg becomes weak/numb & interferes with function. ...Read more

Broken Tibia on right ankle. Ankle reduction 2 weeks ago, no improvement in new X-ray. What should I do?

Broken Tibia on right ankle. Ankle reduction 2 weeks ago, no improvement in new X-ray. What should I do?

Relax! Don't do it.: Even with a spectacular reduction of the fracture, two weeks is hardly enough time judge improvement. A lot of bone absorption followed by bone deposition has to occur. Sometimes early x-rays may look like the healing has stalled or even reversed. Be patient and let your body do it's stuff. ...Read more

Fractured fibula: should be cared for as directed by your physician such as using the walking boot for the full recommended length of time. Based on information you provided can't give additional advice because I don't know when the fracture took place, where in the tibia/fibula it is and how displaced the fracture is. This type of injury really needs to be seen and followed in an office setting. ...Read more

My tibia and fibula were broken treated with orif. Why does my leg feel so heavy?

My  tibia and fibula were broken treated with orif. Why does my leg feel so heavy?

Needs evaluation: It is hard to tell for sure what you mean by leg feels heavy, which can mean different things to different people. 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
