Welcome to the TPF Home Page.

This page has many useful sections with information, and fellow Tibial Plateau Fracture sufferer stories.

If you’ve recently suffered a Tibial plateau Fracture this is the place for you. This site was created after having myself gone through the recovery process of Tibial Plateau Fractures, and this site aims to contain information you need and want to know during Recovery. You can visit the forum to chat and share your story with others. Or, start reading in the Recovery Section Above. In the different pages you will find a lot of helpful information for your recovery period including medical information, first hand accounts of personal recovery stories as well as many useful tips & tricks. It’s Important to understand that this info is based on personal experience and research but that I am not a medical professional. This site is not intended to provide personal health advice. Your doctor is the professional source of information and if any advice your doctor gives you contradicts something written in this site- stick with your doctors opinion.

If you’re asking yourself how long your recovery is going to take, or what to expect, check out the recovery section. If you’re looking for some helpful tips and tricks from people who’ve been there – have a look at tips & tricks. We also have a Forum with recovery stories of different people Containing many inspiring stories and a place to ask fellow visitors questions.

If you’re looking for a community of people who have been through the same also check out the forum, or if you are looking for more information and references, those can be found in “further reading” which contains links to other websites and pages.

This page currently contains mostly information regarding recovery and recuperation after a surgery or non-surgical treatment. If you are still in the hospital and want to know more about your injury this is also the place for you. In future I might add some useful information for your stay in the hospital.

Hope you feel at Home, and feel free to contact about anything at all at [email protected]

  1. I wonder if anyone has this problem: about 6 or 7 years ago, I started having one of my knee (sometime right sometime left), kind of slightly sucked for a second when I walk. It does get back to normal immediately, unless there is an obstacle, like a slippery spot. Is it something I need to worry about? Anyone has the same symptoms? Please let me know.

  2. It’s been 4 weeks since I fractured my TP. After a week in the hospital, 2 weeks in a rehab center, I am home, and getting used to do things just by using a wheelchair and hopping around. My son was a great help for me. I learned a lot, and I am positive I will be fine on my own. After spending 1 week with me, he is going back to work beginning Monday. I am going to star working from home, with my computer and tel. Mt Dr. said it is ok. I am little bit nervous, but I need to be brave, since I cannot drive to go back to work. I need the money to pay my bills, and I need to be brave.
    Dec 7th, I am going back to have another X-ray, I hope this time, I will be able to be PWB!

    Anyone with the same situation? BTW, I am 67 y old, and healthy.

    Thank you,


  3. Steve, Thanks for the “heads up” that it can take 2 yrs to b limp free. Like so much w this injury, I will have to be patient.
