Thanks Lisa! It does sound like they have opposite views on post-surgical treatment. And I haven’t really found anything that says much about early weight bearing so I think most everyone agrees with your OS. Apparently 15 pounds should be ok for hardware and it is more to get the leg used to the ‘walking’ motion than actual PWB. Still it makes me nervous!! Did you also have a bone graft? Although we both have tibial plateau fractures, yours sounds much worse! I hope you are recovering well!
