Tibia fracture questions
« on: December 13, 2014, 10:42:25 PM »
I had a bone scan done yesterday and looked at it at home. The doctor will not see it for another 5 days. I have a diamond shaped fracture on the front sidecof my tibia. It is right below my knee off towards the inside.  It. Is not in the joint and can't be seen when looking straight  down the bone (in 3 d view).  Is this still considered a plateau fracture?  Anyone know how long to stay off of and prognosis for fracture here?  It causes pain to bend and straighten (I can straighten now fine, but if I don't put a towel under my leg at night I wake ip in pain). I can weight it on crutches, but fully weighting it for just a few laps down hallway set it on fire hours later. It's been 8 weeks (but I just now found out it was broken. Thanks for any comments!:)
