Tibial Plateau Fracture / Running

Recommended Posts

Doc,

I'm about 2.5 years post injury. I have come a long way in my recovery. My knee will never be the same but it doesn't stop me from doing much, except running for any distance. Thing is my knee does not hurt when I run it is the front of my leg below the knee almost like shin splints. I am wondering if this is my new normal and it is due to the injury to the joint or is it just lingering weakness from the injury and something I can work through with PT?

If you posted the most recent X-ray, I might be able to offer an opinion.

The repair job was excellent. There is no arthritis and the alignment is good.  An active athlete  never is very happy until the metal is removed.  That's what I would do.

Thanks Dr Mark. You think removal would give me more comfort?
