Re: what is the time frame on healing on a foot (broken heel w/2 pins)
Well I broke both my bones on the ankle-tibia and fibia.I had surgery in January 2010, My Dr put a plate with 5 screws on the outside and 2 big screw on the inside. The outside healed wonderfully but the inside with the 2 screws still has not healed. Its been 6 months already so now Dr wanted to do bone graft and go back in and scrape it and put the bone graft to make it heal and close together, but is willing to try one more thing-bone stimulator for 4 weeks and if no progress then surgery.Well, he told me to walk on it the more I walk the faster it will heal.I have with a sm brace and my ankle swells up and it hurts.Is this normal or should I be careful cause it might break again?
all I know is Im soo tired of this.ITs going to be seven months already.Im waiting for some help to this financially no money.So if its been this long and its still swelling up after I walk and it hurts then its not healing? anyone been thru this situation?
