I understand your concern. It was unfortunate that your fibula fracture
was missed but the good thing is that it was diagnosed and treated appropriately. Since its been only 6weeks after the ORIF
, I suggest you with hold the weight bearing. You will require to get the xrays done regularly to see for callus
formation. Other modality that might help in detecting callus is a CT scan
. Although it might give rise to artifacts you will still be able to detect callus formation. I suggest you discuss with the primary surgeon regarding the same.
