What are the symptoms of tibial fracture?

default
Posted on Tue, 12 May 2015
Question: I suspect that my tibia was fractured back in 2012, but doctors said no. Can you please view attached MRI from 2012 (suspected fracture) and 2014 (badly healed fracture) to confirm?

Please ignore other symptoms for now. I'm just trying to learn if tibia was fracture in previous years. It's a little bit crooked in upper tibia and was horribly painful below the knee about 2 years ago. X-Rays inconclusive but MRI seems to show previous fracture. They gave me cortisone and then it healed poorly I believe. Please see new images to confirm. Thanks!

I will advise you to send more AP and LAT images.

Fibula shows subluxation in upper end.
