Recovery time after surgery for tibial fracture - Online Doctor Chats
User : Hey Doc, I have a question about a Surgery I had on my Tibia last March
User : Hey Doc..question about my surgery?
User : I broke the tibia bone, near my ankle playing rugby..wasn't TOO bad of a beak, but had to get two screws put in on the inside part of my ankle
User : My question -- the doc said he could remove the screws If they were causing me pain, and they are now very much so, since Im in ARMY ROTC as well as an avid rugby player..my question to you is this: User : **How long will recovery time be for the removal of screws in my Tibia bone, and what will they do to the empty holes in the bone that were made by the screws?
Doctor : Well
I was on an emergency call
So sorry for the delay
