Post by: Jimbo007 on August 23, 2007, 04:26:14 PM
I am 7 weeks post-op today from having a ORIF on my Tibia Plateua (plate & 4 screws).
I have been off crutches for two weeks now and am walking better everyday with limited limp.
I used to run alot prior to accident...What is suggested time before I can start running again and how much ??

This is a question and topic you should discuss with your OS. Everything is different in every person and also depending on what the OS believe in.

Net's got a good point Jimbo. Maybe even discuss with your PT. My surgeon won't tell me when i can jog (had bilateral quad ruptures). I was running 30-40 miles before surgery. it's been 10 weeks. PT tells me i won't be jogging for at least 6 mos.
hand tuff!
