Hi i am new at here..sry if i got bad english..
Las month my tibia,fibula and femur were broken due to an accident.and in the operation,my doctor put metal rod on both of the legs.
las few days i go to check wif the doctor again,and from the x-ray,doctor told me that my femur was align tgt already,but my tibia and fibula still not yet align back.
So,i wanna ask that izit in the operation ,my doctor should align my tibia and fibula when putting a metal rod or jus put a metal rod and let it recover and align back automatically?i very scare i nid to operation 1 more time to align my tibia and fibula..
thanks!

I had a tib/fib fx many years ago. the rod inserted in your tibia should be aligning it. It takes a long tiem to heal. Mine took 4 1/2 months in a series of casts, non weight bearing on crutches. Have patience!
