Re: Broken Tibia and Fibula

My husband broke his tibia and fibula (right leg) in a snowmobiling accident. As a result, he had emergency orthopaedic surgery which consisted of a titanium rod and 4 screws. He is only 6 days post op, and has not had his first follow up with the surgeon. My husband wants to ride his snowmobile around the lake tonight, he says he can tolerate it. I know this is too soon, can I please have some professional advice on resuming physical activity?? HELP!!!
