My xrays came back with noticeable cross hatching in the break. So my Orthopedist doesn't feel I need surgery. But I'm still being monitored monthly. I'm using my bone stimulator, taking calcium pill and exercising. I've got to be ready for riding season, cause I sat out last year.

No, he didn't put me on a diet, he said I should be getting my calcium normally, and what my body needs it will take from elsewhere. I think the pills probably did some good, and exercising too. The pain is less, and so's the swelling, I'm starting to tinker in my garage after almost 10 months, so that's a good thing. I measure my health by how much stuff I do around the house. I'm almost back to normal, thinking of painting my kids' room's in the coming weeks, so I must be getting better.

Broke my tibia about 40 years ago courtesy of a drunk cager & still have the screws they put in . Back then there wasn't the electronic stuff. Had a cast on for 8 1/2 months; last two months of which they made it a walking cast. Point is it took time to heal and the doctor later told me he almost couldn't save the leg because it was a china fracture (lots of pieces and the bone came sticking through) said I was lucky. Anyway, give this some time, definitely get a second opine, and see if it will heal on its own if a second opinion says it will heal in time. Remember to trust your gut. Good luck & hope it works out.

Regards,
Nick (n-nick-]thegreek)

Good news, my leg is fully healed. Doc has ok'd me to ride again, and wants to see me again in 4 months for the final follow-up. I've got no pain in my leg at the point of fracture, and I've been running everyday on the treadmill since April. Now if I could just get those darned parts from the 'stealer' I can go ride. Always something!

Glad to hear the good news. The running will continue the process of ossification?? and stimulate and further strengthen the break. I've been told that when the bone is finally through "knitting" that it is as strong as it ever was. It's the mental aspect you have to overcome (it will always be broken) so that you don't favor the good one and throw off your walking, posture, etc. Continued good luck and may you be safe from those left-truning cagers.
