Knee Injury (fracture)
bekkalynnb posted:
I had to go to the emergency room because I slipped and did something to my knee. I must've been screaming for five minutes. The ER did x rays and a cat scan concluding with the information that I had a tibial plateau fracture. Is this a fracture that MUST be casted? And how long is the recommendation of no weight on that leg? I am asking because I have no health insurance. The ER stuck a huge clumsy brace on my leg and told me to go to the ortho clinic. thanks.
