January 16/17 I fell on the ice/snow while walking out to feed our horses. I shattered my tibia & fibula.
Surgeon placed 4 plates, 9 pins and quite a few screws. I spent a week in the hospital due to very high blood pressure post op as well as fevers. They had a surgical soft cast on my lower leg for 2 weeks, and now I'm in an air cast. My question is - is it normal for my leg to turn a dark
Purple colour when I have it down ? Also, what should I expect over the next few weeks of recovery ? I am non weight bearing for the next 3 months
