tibia plateau fracture on amputated side

Recommended Posts

Its been a while since Ive been here. To get to the point I slipped and fell badly on my prosthetic.

The fall resulted in a crushed and sheared tibia plateau fracture. I had to have surgery which required two bone graphs, a bone cement repair on the 7cm vertical fracture and a complete repair of the meniscus. Also plates and screws were required. I wont be able to weight bare for 4 months.

Have any here dealt with such as this? I am worried about how I may or not healmor walk.

Thank You
