On my legs and lot more mobile after suffering from a tibia and fibula fracture. When can I resort to sporting activities?

Hi there, I was wanting to know how soon I could play sport. I fractured my tibia (in two places) and fibula last year in September (10/09/11) and was back learning to walk a month and a half later. I had surgery and a rod and pin was inserted straight down the middle of my tibia with a pin at the top just under my knee cap. It has been a while and I am alot more mobile now but wanted to seek advice before jumping back into sport. If you could help me it would be very much appreciated.

hi lima
the ideal time for bone union is two years, but then a lot depends on your symptoms and your x rays , if no pain , x rays are fine you can start sports earlier but then knowing your fracture personality/ will take sometime do call your ortho doctor
