Hi!
It is very difficult to assess the answer to your question. I am sorry to disappoint you but it may take about 18 months or more before you can start playing sports. Also, depending on the healing, your doctor may or may not remove the rods. It is too early in the day to comment on your rehabilitation and recovery. But if your bones heal well and can take the stress, then you may be able to return to active sports and weight lifting. Please discuss the progress with your doctor. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
