Broken leg recovery time

Common Questions and Answers about Broken leg recovery time


1542537 tn?1293210698 Hi, broken bones take a varying amount of time to heal, mostly depending upon the type of bone broken, the age of the person, and the way in which the bone is broken. Larger broken bones, for example the bones in the thigh, or both bones of leg would take a great deal longer to heal, usually six weeks to three months in the average healthy adult. Begin physical therapy as soon as is practical. That will help.
Avatar n tn The less you can do the better for your brain so it can heal. Think of your brain as you would a broken leg, when your leg is broke you dont use it till it heals, since we cannot put our brains in a cast to let them heal we must limit our brain use as best we can. SInce we are always using our brains (even while we sleep) it takes a very long time for our brains to heal. My best advice to you is if you are able take a couple weeks off of work to literally do nothing.
Avatar n tn Then there was the recovery time. I did have fatigue and chest aches for awhile but was still able to do general everyday things. You do need to sit down and have a talk with your cardio EP. They need to explain it all more clearly (yes, they can tone it down so you'll understand what's happening) and tell you the options ahead of you.

Avatar n tn Hi. As there is still pain and a limp when you walk, it wouldn't be advisable to do any activity that would aggravate your symptoms. It would be difficult to say right now when you would be able to run and play contact sports again. Even if the pain and limp would resolve, there is no certainty that the bones in your foot have healed adequately until an X-ray is done. This also goes for wearing heels.
Avatar n tn I have a FLAT stomach and right know i look to be about 5 months pregnant. I am not exaggeration. They said recovery time will be about 2 weeks, well they haven't been exactly honest with the rest of the info so I'm not sure when i will feel better.
Avatar m tn I broke my leg in a motorbike crash and have a rod and 4 screws in my tibia an my fibula is also broken,its been 3 weeks and i am a little worried that my knee is not in correct line with my foot. What is the normal procedures to correct this? how much recovery time would it normally add?
1041303 tn?1421390941 My Grandfather was a Vaquero (Mexican cowboy), and rode and owned horses almost my whole life until 1997 at the age of 81 my Grandpa went out on his horse and the horse bucked him off and dragged him for a long time. My Grandpa suffered many broken ribs, a broken arm, and a broken leg as well as the skin on one of his legs was completely removed from the dirt and gravel. We thought he was not going to make it, but boy did he surprise everyone.
Avatar m tn I'm a 17 year old male and I broke my tibia and fibula playing soccer on Wednesday the 6th of October i believe. and i got the normal 3 months for recovery time, this really ***** though because it is also my senior year and i can't play basketball now and i do play golf and i'm hoping that they will let me play that seeing it obviously isn't contact or rough on my leg. I was told it would also take another 3 months for full recovery.
Avatar f tn 2 weeks ago I was hit by a car and had my leg broken, the knee socket crushed and my shoulder broken. They performed surgery on the knee about 12 days ago and are about to do surgery on the shoulder. Both are on the left side. Is there any set up I can use that will allow me to walk in any way? As I understand it I will not be able to use a crutch on my left side. Thanks!
Avatar n tn My doc told me everything has healed perfect and I can start putting weight onto my leg and hopefully be up and moving by the time I come back for my visit in 4 weeks. (its allready been two weeks) My question is how do I know if i'm putting two much weight onto it. It gives a little bit of pain when i put alot of weight on it but not unbearable. But i'm still afraid it's going to snap into.
Avatar f tn I am going to have surgery quite soon for my herniated/broken disc. I wondered how long if anyone has had this, how long is recovery? I mean how long for pain? WIll I feel great right away and be able to do normal things? Now, a relative who thinks they are the only one with pain and mostly lies, so I don't know whether to believe them or not said our grandfather had the surgery and was up literally dancing right after surgery that day.
Avatar m tn I have undiagnosed nervous system disorder and I get this actually but more in the groin, and down my left leg, numbness and not being able to tell if someone touches my leg or not. It certainly could be the after affects of the accident it will take a long time for all the nerves to heal, and it oculd be the results of the brain hemoraghe or just that the accident has caused some spinal cord trauma.
Avatar m tn I don't know much about it. I don't wanna take it if it's very addictive, I'm in recovery and not gonna let a muscle pill make me use if it that type of med. anyone with experience with soma please reply.
Avatar m tn They have put me off work until january, so this time will be great to give it the best possible time to heal, i also massage my foot and apply some heat at least once a day before i do simple movements with the ankle, it really seems to help. Thanks for the info!! hope you injury of the calcaneus heals well. How did you break it?
Avatar n tn I have been having a hard time with my recovery, as well. I had an ablation done for svt back in mid December. The doctor said that he thought that he had gotten it all this time around, however, I am now having more symptoms than ever before!! I feel like my heart is reacting to any type of movement that my body makes right now; I have to go around my entire day in a defense mode. How do you know that you have had sinus tachycardia, skipped beats, etc.. since your ablation?
Avatar n tn I can only speak from my own experience, as I am not a medico or therapist. I had my stroke nearly 12 months ago, a bad one, my entire left side of losing movement (but not sensation). My leg & foot are more advanced than my arm, so I was able to walk (with walking stick) after a few weeks. After a few months I could walk without stick. It's still a work in progress, trying to maintain & improve the function that I have. My arm was/is more stubborn.
1235186 tn?1339127464 I guess fear of getting caught with drugs or being an accomplice to their overdose. They put me in bed, elevated my leg, and put ice on it. Sunday morning a bit more swollen and discolored. I had pain with numbness and tingling in my toes. We had crutches here and I wrapped it with a ace bandage. Went to church and out to dinner with friends. As the day went on it got worse. Now this morning my whole foot was discolored and very swollen, like I could pop it with a pin. Off to the ER I went.
Avatar n tn I have tried researching spontaneous recovery but have found little information beyond that it is possible. Is the information my doctor told me accurate? Do I not have to worry about it anymore? Will it never come back? I would appreciate any feedback you all could offer.
Avatar n tn My question, to help lift his spirits alittle, is what is the normal time frame as far as pain goes for recovery of a broken back, and will the numbness he experiences eventually go away, and in what time frame. He wants to someday return to work, but sees no hope there. Thank-you for your time.

Avatar m tn that is half way up my leg, It was broken straite through with one or two fragments as well. The clicking is not frequent and quite faint. Might there be a non union or maybe it is just a frament that didn't bond, none the less , could this be a symptom of non union or would there be much harsher sypmtoms to indicate non union?
Avatar n tn What I found is that every time I cut down, I had the same w/d. I couldn't keep it up. Leg pain is normal. I have only read one post ever on this board from a person who did tapering/ct who did not have leg pain. Try a hot bath or hot shower. That seemed to help and many others.
Avatar n tn What does this mean? I am having a difficult time dealiing with this unknown and unpredictable recovery process. The doctors keep giving me the worse case scenario but I see things happening which they don't really explain to me. Has anyone had this sort of experience?
Avatar n tn Hi, My father has broken his ankle very severely due to a fall and will have surgery today. From what I understand he will need special screws and such to fix it. We've been told that he can start trying to walk again after about 6 weeks but it will may take a long time before he's fully recovered.
Avatar n tn It was a big 4 lb benign mucinous (filled with junk) mass. The surgery was done via C-section and my recovery time was probably a week before I felt up to going to college classes and what not. I have to admit that for a year I didn't feel the same. The tumor had pushed my organs all out of whack and the doctor said it would take time for them to come back into place and it did. Like you I have a history with my sister Brittany having ovarian cancer and passing away from it.
Avatar f tn For the first 10 days following surgery I had no leg pain at all - it was like a miracle! However, over the last few days, the leg pain has begun to return. It is mainly when I lie down and although it is not as severe as before surgery, it is enough to keep me awake at night and i have had to begin taking pain medication again. I am terrified that the operation has failed.
Avatar m tn Her joints feel fine, she allows me to squeeze and manipulate the leg and joints without yelping - she does shake and pant a little when she sits, until she finds a comfy spot, so she is experiencing SOME discomfort. She will put weight on the leg. She just seems to tense the leg and keep it straight while walking. We're wondering if anybody else has had this problem? There isn't a vet locally that is open on the weekend, and it's crazy expensive to go to the doggy ER here .. .
