I broke my Tibia and a plate was put in. I was having trouble getting some bone or bone tissue to heal and then I find out there is a small break in the plate. Now they want to use a rod. I'm having problems with my leg and foot swelling. I have been elevated it (which seems almost to make it worse.) I take my pain medication in the AM and PM and use Advil between. My leg is so hard it is hard and painful to move. Is waiting another week and a half okay?

Thank you
