Seems as though your healing is the same as mine was. I have never heard that about the calcium w/ D,but I was told to take D3 & a big dose of vit.C. You really should have a check up in the next couple of weeks just to make sure everything is healing as it should. Also make sure you are working on your range of motion even if just by doing foot rolls & pointing & flexing your foot. Good luck!
Broke my tibia & fibula on Feb 4th of this year. Still non weight bearing and still get a tremendous amout of swelling. From what I see from other posts it looks like on average its going to be a year or so before its completely healed!? I was taking calcium with vit D but read that it causes CV disease and breast cancer in women so I stopped taking it. If I try to put any pressure its burns like crazy.I was told I had a titanium rod to help my tibia fuse itself together....fyi this was from afall down my steps (4 steps).
Any insite?? Havent seen my ortho doc in 6 weeks. I have no medical insurance and they are money hungry. I refuse to see the vultures!
Here's my story , i had a broken tibia and fibula as well i was trying tio help a female from getting beaten by his boyfriend , it was slippery oitside my right leg went forward and my left leg went backwards and my big ***( lol ) landed on top of my ankle and distored my ankle and broke my tibia and fibula , i went to the hospital where i stayed two nights then on monday i had to go see the bone doctor at the other hosiptal and told me that your fracture was a bad one . i was on a cast for four weeks now and i can stand on my left foot , reason for is that i've been taken calcium tablets ( 2 tablets twice a day ) and my aunt was surprise that i can stand on it ,, her words were i don't believe it no one that i know heals that fast .. SO IF YOU WANNA HEAL FASTER I SUGGEST YOU TAKE CALCIUM TABLETS ,,OK I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU
I am no Dr. but that looks out of line to me. I had similar injury.Had nail inserted w/ screws and nothing done w/ fibula. However,5 months later my fibula still hadn't healed so I had a bone graft done with a plate and more screws inserted. I think a second opinion may be in order. Good luck &speedy recovery!
I had both bones broken too and they only nailed the tibia. I was told the fibula would align itself and heal as is. so far so good.
