Just diagnosed with TPF this past Friday. I went to the doctor to find out the results of my MRI, thinking I had torn my ACL or MCL I came out with you broke your leg. I am nonweight bearing right now and I go back to the doctor on the 5th to see if I can go back to work on light duty. It is a nondisplaced fracture. Can someone tell me what is the percentage rate that the fracture stay nondisplaced and not shift. I am having a hard time with the crutches and staying put which I am sure alot of people do. I am in a hinged brace. My doctor was very adamant about me staying off of my leg. Also reading up on this kind of fracture it is very serious…..Any tips or advance would be greatly appreciated. Also will I get back to running?
