Tibial Plateau Fracture
« on: April 22, 2014, 06:32:00 PM »
I have a plate and pins inserted for my tibial plateau fracture, which happened 5 months ago. I think the plate is rubbing against the soft tissue surrounding it, particularly at the muscle at the front of the tibia as any exercise causes swelling, tenderness, pain and discomfort to walk.

My physiotherapist is going to contact my consultant to see me as soon as possible due to not being able to maintain regular exercise and strengthening of my leg. Has anyone else experienced this and what was the outcome? The plate and pins are due to be removed but not until December 2014.

Any advice you can offer will be gratefully received!  :)

Thank you
