Good morning! I have a tibial plateau fracture, with a lateral depression, so my lower leg is angled out (valgus), and it also makes my foot angled to get flat on the ground. I'm told since the cartilage broke, I have arthritis. It is not unbearable, but I limp, my walking is limited, and I feel unstable on my feet. Mostly I have been told to wait until I can't stand it, but it already interferes with my activity. How long have some of you waited? Was it worth it? My doctor says he will do it in about 6 months. I am eager and terrified! What if....?! The lateral depression means some filling in of the hole, and maybe healing a little slower? Anyone else have this problem? thanks for any advise! Jan
