Forum Name: Bone trauma and fractures
|snlphillips - Thu May 21, 2009 8:13 pm||
I compound fractured my tib and fib. After two surgeries my fibula still has a big offset and there isn't anything in there to hold it in place. My doctor said that is the standard procedure and it will heal fine. I'm looking for a second opinion. Take a look at these X-rays.
What do you think?

See previous post.
Fibula is non weight bearing bone and should do fine without reduction.
