I am 27 i play soccer had an injury feb 5 2012, broken tib an fib. Had surgery the next day a rod and 2 screws were inserted. its been almost 3 months i can walk now and preety much everything. My question is how long should i wait before playing soccer. I dont want to go in too soon but at the same time i want to be in the field already.
i had the same break in my left tib/fib back in 2004. I was able to walk in a month, and was running/jogging in 6 weeks. make sure you strengthen your muscles and become comfortable with daily activities before you go back to playing completely. I rushed back into basketball and had stress fractures all along the distal ends of both fibulas. not fun. in addition, i sprained my knee countless times. overcompensating the deficiencies of your hurt leg with your healthy leg is never a good idea. take your time
