I echo Lisa. This is a fantastic site for support and info. I log in several times a day As it feels like you are talking to friends. My TPF had a much less dramatic cause – my staffie cross ran into my left leg at speed – nonetheless, I have had to have surgery with a graft, plate and screws and I am now 4 weeks out of surgery and still NWB for another 2 weeks when I will be back at the fracture clinic to see how the healing is doing. If all is well, I will be partial WB for another 6 weeks. I had no idea what this injury was all about until I found this site and now I know it is all about patience and perseverance in order to achieve a pre accident state. I wish you well in your recovery.
