Re: Recovery Broken Tibia
I also had this surgery, just about two weeks ago.
I was told that if not for complications, my doctor would have me begin putting weight on my leg any day.
However, I have an additional fracture that is adding another 4-6 weeks until I can put weight on it.
The most helpful things so far have been elevation and a "Game Ready" compression/cooling "cuff" that covers my whole lower leg.
I'm curious to know what your expereicne with pain management has been --
I've been going half on my prescribed pain medication during the day (Vikidin), but sometime the pain is pretty bad--particularly when getting up on my crutches, of course.
I find it hard to concentrate with the pain and with the pain medication, but I am trying to work from home. Gettign the right balance of pain relief without getting dopey is a huge challenge..
