Welcome

Welcome to the TPF Home Page.

This page has many useful sections with information, and fellow TPF 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 TPF, 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 info@mytpf.com

  1. I have a question for anyone or everyone. I have posted on here before that in May of last year I was in a motorcycle wreck resulting in a tib/ fib break and a cracked kneecap. I had a plate put in and a bunch of screws. Did my rehab got off the crutches and stopped using my cane. I walk to work about a half mile away most of the week now but the last few weeks I haven’t been feeling good. So I try to eat healthy as I can afford and try to bear with the pain. Of course my leg is really crooked now and I am hunting for a better doctor that jacked me up. The question I have is, I force myself to stand as long as I can anywhere between 8-15 hours a day just at work. The longer I stand the more I can feel what feels like broken glass in my knee and my ankle (which still bruses just from walking around BTW). This eventually slowly expands and meets in the middle of my shin making standing and/or walking a almost impossible idea. I know this is most likely due to the effects of the surgery and the installation of the plate and the atrophy that I got from being inactive for the months that it was mending. However, on the left leg I am experienceing the feeling of broken glass inside of that ankle as well. This ankle was not broke and the pain of the glass like feeling is much more pronounced. What is this? Is anyone experiencing this? Is it possible that both ankle have been broke and I have been walking around on them because the doctor was to lazy to do his/her job? More or less I just need to know how to get rid of it. Its making it impossible to work, cook or just walk to the bathroom.
