I broke my tibia, fibia and ankle (4 breaks) paragliding into a mountain.
I have a pin in my tibia and never had any plaster. The operation was in Spain.
When I returned to the UK, a junior consultant took an Xray and said all was well. Two consultations later, he says the same. The three Xrays all show the same gap in the tibia.
The senior consultant popped in during the second consultation and quizzed the junior consultant about the gap, saying that it had not healed and perhaps the screws holding the pin would break hopefully. Hardly inspiring.
I have been attending the excellent physiotherapy gym and can put full weight on the affected leg. I've just started work on my allotment too. I can feel the unhealed gap.
Another 8 weeks to the next appointment. I can't get hold of electronic copies of the Xray because the hospital cannot email my GP! They can only send a faxed copy which cannot be zoomed in to the gap.
I'm just wondering if I should ask to see another consultant at a different hospital.
