Re: tibia fracture

I had a tib/fib spiral fracture due to a sking accident.
After six weeks of PT I am doning very well regarding flexibility, strength and reduced swelling. I am, however, experiencing tenderness of the medial ankle bone when walking. It is covered with a plate. The pain came on about 4 weeks into PT. What can be the cause of this? It was actually better earlier on in the therapy.

Featuring a higher narrower waist and a more tapered thigh area than our men's compression shorts for better fit and reduced creeping. Intera-lined crotch panel incorporates a single center seam for extended comfort.
