stress fracture after fulkerson
« on: December 19, 2009, 06:22:20 PM »
I had a fulkerson osteotomy on my left knee the end of July.  Everything was a success! I was on crutches nwb for 6 weeks and then began walking without crutches after 8 weeks.  However, now it is December and I developed pain and bad tenderness in my shin.  The ortho took an x-ray last week and discovered a stress fracture from the osteotomy site down my shine.  SO I am back on crutches until January when I see the dr. again.  Has anyone else ever had this problem?
