Is my Doctor right about this? Seems crazy to me!

Recommended Posts

I was riding a pit bike last month and put my foot down off a small jump. Ended up snapping my fibula and had to have surgery. Doctor says in a couple weeks he wants me to walk on it and if the biggest screw snaps they will leave it in forever!! If not then I have to have it taken out! ***!!! Has anyone been through this before or even heard of this? I'm not looking forward to walking on it! I almost think I'd rather have them take it out.

I don't take out that screw for at least one year. If it breaks, then I don't have to take it out. The Doc is on the money here.

I had almost the exact same break and close to the same spot as you, and I did the same as your doctor and Dr. Mark suggested.

In my case the screw never broke (I was walking again in 2 weeks and racing in 6) and I never had the screws or the plate removed.

Have a great weekend!
