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.

  1. I had a tibial plateau fracture about a year ago, no surgery was done. No weight bearing for 3 months, It still hurts once in a while but it my ankle that gives me the most pain, just after the fracture, my whole leg and especially the ankle was very swollen. Now that ankle still gives me most pain, I have full range movement of my foot. Not sure if this is normal or not.

    • Same here with the foot. I feel like my foot was injured but all focus was on my TPF which was nasty. I am 7 months out and I feel I am slowly getting better. The biggest thing was walking. My right leg had atrophied as well as my injured left leg. I get cramps mostly in the right leg and I’ve had Restless Leg syndrome that occurs at night. I found the only thing that makes it calm down is aspirin. I also have access to Medical Marijuana because I live in Colorado. Indica edibles help me sleep and a topical cream they make penetrates into the skin and relieves aches and pain I get near my knees.

  2. Please check out Tibial Plateau Fracture Recovery group on Facebook. Lots of good info and people who have been very helpful. Best wishes.

  3. Hi ,
    My father met with an accident and had fractured the knee (tibial fracture) at multiple places and it got complicated with da tire blisters. Was operated after a week and now it’s a week post operation. Hybrid external fixators are used and he has lots of pain where the screws are present and today observed a new blister. This new blister worries us as this could lead to infection. Has any one faced the fracture blister situation. Any info would be of great help. Thanks and wishing everyone suffering speedy recovery
