6 weeks post tibial plateau fx
« on: January 15, 2004, 06:08:08 PM »
Hi There First time using this site so aplogies if I am not up on the vocab. I'm getting pretty fed up at this stage. 6.5 weeks since surgery following a shattered tibial plateau and a broken fibia. I haven't seen my OS since surgery and have only had 2 hospital apts. Each time with a new doc who didn't know my history and told me totally different stuff. Does anyone else get frustrated with their docs? :-/ I won't see anyone for another 6 weeks. No mention of physio yet. Is this normal? Should I be getting physio before the 3 month stage?
