  • Description: Has anyone come back after a broken leg?
    I recently broke my leg (fibia and tibia) and required a plate to be fitted with a sizeable incision down my leg for the surgery which has left a nice scar.

    At the moment I still can't walk unaided (still using crutches) but have managed a couple of spells on the turbo trainer and just finished a 10 min spell and felt fine.

    There is no pain in the bone as such, but the knee is still stiff after the surgery (was told it could take a full year before the swelling goes down fully) and wondered if the turbo is going to casue more damage or help in the recovery.

    Has anyone had direct experience of recovery after this type of injury?
