Re: Broken Tibia and Fibula

Hi,fellow bone healers.I too broke both tib and fib on 17 Oct 08 and have a nice long pin through the tib with 5 holding pins to keep everything stable.I too am concerned as to the lack of info given with regard to timing etc.I expect to start some physio by end of Nov and doctor says do light exercises while in bed such as lifting whole leg and putting downward pressure on leg to straighten it.Does anyone know what physio exercises will be?
