Hi every body,
I am N.K. Bhatia, 46 year diabetic (Type2) male. During a bus journey, sitting on the seat of rear Tyre, my left leg tibia and fibula (lower 3/4) fractured due to burst of bus Tyre. It was a uncommon accident, but it happened to me on 5 August 2014. Got operated for on 6th August: tibia was fixed with a rod and 6 screws and fibula was fixed with a plate and 6 screws. Got relieved from hospital on 16 August after stitch removal. Today, on 27 August, i saw this wonderfully good site for a patient like me. Since last 4 day, I am able to fold my knee fully, stretch and keep up my leg fully, movement of tows etc and putting 10-12 kg weight through walker while going to bathroom (12 meter, thrice a day) and to terrace (20 meter twice a day) as per the advice of my OS. In your post, it is mentioned that weight should not be put on the injured leg for initial 6 weeks or so, please tell me that.. am I on right way as for as putting of 10-12 kg weight on injured leg or otherwise.
