Broke my leg/ankle skateboarding last Wednesday. Broken tibia and fibula and the doctor ordered surgery and placed a titanium plate with 7 screws in fibula and a single screw in my tibia. Does anybody have any exercise recommendations while I'm in this cast and if anybody has any comments on me being able to ride this season coming up. Im 17 so I'm a quick healer and i understand there is no exact time frame for healing bones but anyone with personal experience is welcomed.
Look down one post from this one. I only broke my fibula but also got a titanium plate with 8 screws and dislocated my ankle. You'll be non weight-bearing for 6-8 weeks. There's not gonna be much exercise you can do while you're immobilized unfortunately. Well probably other than leg lifts...lol
i have the same fracture a little higher up and a small crack in the other bone
and staples instead of stitches.
and the doctor said hes gonna put me into a hard cast that i can bear weight on in two week
dont know what that looks likes but hopefully it means faster healing
good luck man
Yea, sounds like you have a better break than I do...lol It's really the dislocation that hurt me more than the break. At your age though you should be healing in no time. Just try not get out on the slopes too early, you wan't proper healing. You have many many many more days of riding ahead of you.
What did you do to break both though? Just curious.
