HI All,I suffered a TPF last 25th March when jumping hurdles during my running training. It was quite a nasty one due to large fragmentation and damaged my cartilage and joints. I had surgery 2 days later, i required a plate and 5 pins and some bone grafting from my hips. I am a very active 29 year old, i used to train every day, running, gym etc. One week before my accident I had just received acceptance for the London Royal Parks Half Marathon in October which I was going to run with my dad and some other friends to commemorate my dad’s 60th birthday, so it was quite a major blow. I am now into the 8th week, still no weight bearing and still on 45% ROM in the ROM splint. This site has been a huge moral help especially during those dark moments when you feel that your whole world has suddenly collapsed! One thing I learnt so far is that TPF can happen in an instant but takes so long to heal!!!
