Broken Fibula

On 8-13-05 I rolled my ankle the end result was a break at the lateral maliolis. I am out of the boot now for 7 weeks and the last x-ray shows that the break has not closed. There appears to be debrea in the break. My Ortho. now wants to do surgery and put a screw in to close the break, after cleaning out the debrea. would you agree?

Bio Skin compression shorts offer a significant advance over other brands. They supply superior compression to the groin and hamstring without the bulk of the typical compression shorts.
