Over the summer I experienced a tibial plateau fracture. Lets just say this website gave me a big relief. The fracture was so small that it was almost impossible to see it on an x-ray and I had to get and MRI. The doctor told me that it would naturally heal on its own, so from August until October I continued in my normal everyday life. However the pain did not subside and was made NWB for six weeks with no surgery then six weeks of PT. However I just finished the six weeks of PT a few weeks ago and began participating in sports again(soccer) as I was completely cleared to do so. Since then my knee has hurt as badly as it did before I went on the crutches and at the time of the original injury. I am wondering if the fracture could be a nonunion because it failed to heal in the first place. Secondly if it is a nonunion what would be the treatment because the fracture is so long. Finally would this recovery be something that would effect my ability to perform with a Marching Band by August? Thanks!
