An operation was performed on the tibia. There was an open comminuted fracture of both bones of the lower leg with a mixing of fragments. A plate was installed on the tibia. I was allowed to apply a full force on the injured leg, and the plate burst. I underwent a second operation with bone grafting and another plate.
I was diagnosed with Coxarthrosis of the head of the hip joint. I couldn't walk much during the illness because it hurt. That caused weakness in the muscles around the joint. After the operation, I quickly returned to my routine, but at some moment something seemed to click in my hip. I saw flashes in my eyes because of the pain. The leg became shorter, and it hurt like hell to stand on it. It turned out to be "Dislocation of the head of the endoprosthesis" due to the excessive load.
I had endoprosthetics. I started to apply force on my leg right after leaving the hospital. As a result, it's already been a year, but I have not recovered yet. And probably I won't succeed with the rehabilitation in the future. Due to the displaced endoprosthesis, the femur clings to the iliac bone. I cannot sit for a long time because my leg becomes numb. I cannot walk for a long time, for the same reason. This is not what I expected from the operation!
Due to the lack of static and dynamic loads on the injured limb, immobilization osteoporosis developed, accompanied by pseudarthrosis. There was an operative treatment - transosseous osteosynthesis. From my experience, I know that it's crucial to follow a doctor's recommendations.
After the operation, I was afraid to step on my foot for a long time. I didn't want to damage the metal structure. The leg became noticeably thinner, and it was very difficult to restore the muscles. An injured leg quickly got tired after any activity.
