I am part of a forum for folks with broken legs, but it seems that those that get better don't come back, though I can't blame them.
Anyways I'm taking a wild stab here on MC to see if anybody (you or someone close to you) has had surgery for their broken leg. I have an IM rod and 6 screws in my left leg (tib/fib fracture), and presently I'm walking with a bit of a limp - plus the unfortunate effect of my knee giving out at inoportune times (like when I'm walking) and almost falling on my butt. Then there is the pressure in my knee - MAN!
I am mostly interested in knowing how long it has taken any of you to recover. How long did you keep your hardware? What was the difference between having the hardware and getting it removed? And any other tid bits you are willing to share.
As it is with me the screws below my knee stick out a bit, enough that I can feel them through my jeans! So, they do bother me and hopefully I'll be getting them out sometime soon.
Oh, and if you see a woman with a squirrel cane at Disneyland that would be me (sometimes I'm on the scooters too).
