Question: I had met with An accident on 29th November and had
A type 5 proximal tibia fracture. Surgery was done with plates and screws put. Now after 4 weeks have taken an x Ray wanted an opinion if weight bearing or knee rotation can be done or not. Can send the images separately.

Brief Answer:
Avoid weight bearing or a knee rotation.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
I have seen the attached X-rays. The internal fixation has been done but the healing is yet not so much so as you can bear a weight on the leg. It is best to do only a non weight bearing physiotherapy for another 4 weeks. It is best to avoid knee rotation also for another few weeks.
I hope this answers your query.
