Question: Hi there,
I recently met with an accident in which i broke my tibia and fibia bone, it was a compound fracture so a titanium rod has been inserted. Its been 25+ days since the surgery and im able to walk with walker. The doctor has told me to only use the fractured foot's tip while walking. Im taking a proper diet of nonveg, vegetables along with extra calcium tablets (SETFRAC) and alfala (AMWAY ) tablets, fish cod liver oil tabs. How much more time it will take for me to be able to walk without any support? Also when can i get back to bike riding? PS: I forgot to mention that i do exercise of joint movements everyday as suggested by my doctor. I have my college starting from March and i have to get back to XXXXXXX before February End.
ANY SUGGESTIONS WHICH MAY HELP IN FASTER RECOVERY? ANY MEDICINE WHICH MAY HELP IN RECOVERING FASTER?

Brief Answer:
8-10 weeks needed for recovery.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
After a compound fracture of tibia which has been fixed with titanium rod it takes 8-10 weeks to heal properly. You will be able to walk normally and ride a bike by the end of January.
You are having a good diet and supplements for proper healing. You can also add a multivitamin tablet daily for proper micronutrients that are needed for bone formation.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.

Hi, I'm 25 years old female and have been experiencing hair loss for over 8 years now. I also got my CBC test and thyroid test done but they are all fine - I don't have iron deficiency or thyroid problem, I don't understand the cause of this gradual hair loss. It started after I'd done extreme dieting at the age of 16, but it's been years since I've stopped dieting and eating healthy but still no improvement. I also take multivitamins as prescribed by a dermatologist. Neither does such condition run in my family.. Please help!
p.s I am 52 kg in weight and 5'5" in height.
