I was hoping someone could share their experience of fractured ankle and tibia with me. I'm 49 and I fell off one step while visiting my son in south of France. I fractured my ankle and tibia in 4 places. Surgeons who have seen xrays say it is a very bad injury. I had my operation in France and had plates screws and pins fitted. After 10 days in hospital I came home and attended my local hospital. Surgeon here says that the leg has not been fixed properly and there is so much metal in it that there can't be any movement and thus stopping it from healing. Surgery was on 27 May. Latest xrays on 19 July show it hasn't healed. I'm really frightened ill have to go through another operation. Anyone else with similar experience.
