My daughter has a tibial plateau fracture which happened over the holiday. She is in horrible pain, with meds, plus a non- permanent cast until she can see the orthopedic surgeon to see if she needs surgery. Can anyone please give me any incite to this. We know NO weight bearing for three months. I would appreciate any info.
