Hi!
Has anyone out there had surgery where Trufit plugs OBI were used? I'm scheduled for surgery shortly.  I'm having a heck of a time finding any patients who have had this done.  Does anyone know of someone who had these plugs used esp in the U.S.? and what were the results? Anyone who is now back to competitive running, sports etc.  Hope someone can help. Thanks for your time.

I believe "Shade" had this along with her first TTT.  She doesn't post alot right now, but maybe you could send her a message. ( you may need one or 2 additional posts to be able to send someone a post.

Good Luck!

Hey I had trufits alongside a CMI implant surgery 6 months ago. There is very little posts on trufits on here, which has been a bit annoying for me also.

Going well for me now though :) but took a while

I had Obi Trufit plug inserted almost 6 weeks ago.  I'm still on crutches and go to see my surgeon on Thursday for a post-op X-Ray and exam.  I'll let you know how it goes.
