- Q: my gf got into a auto accident, she broke 2 of her legs, she uses a wheelchair right now. how long does it usualy take for her two broken legs to heal so she can walk again? she can’t use crtuches for one of them since 2 were broken at the same time. my gf is scared she can’t walk again, so i ask this.
- A: Tell her not to worry, she will be fine. Without knowing the type of fracture (commune, compound or stress) It is harder to answer. Stress fractures are the quicker healing. Typically, it is just cracking of the bones. Very painful but usually they can be walked on within a couple of weeks. Compound fractures depend on how many actual breaks there are and in which area of the bone they are. Compound fractures penetrate the skin and also cause lacerations where the bone protrudes. Typically, the healing time is 6-8 weeks but with more severe breaks, 12 weeks is not unheard of. Commune fractures are the worst. These are injuries that actually crush the bone. They almost always need surgical intervention and the recovery time can be anywhere from a couple of months to more than a year. In any case, tell her to follow doctors orders and not to worry. In a couple of weeks, tell her to stretch out the muscles in her legs, they tend to waste away quickly. Also tell her that when the bones start to heal, she will begin to feel what seems like “popping” in the bones and that it is normal. It is just the bones “knitting” themselves back together.
- I am having muscle spasms in my lower leg and sometimes when walking, my leg gives out and i fall, why?
- Q: I have been excercising a lot after being off my feet for a while due to the other leg being broken and taking a long time to heal. I am walking again and going to physical therapy.
- A: Slow down. Your leg is not used to it. Your leg gives out because lactic acid buildup; which usually gives cramps, but can just stop your legs fuctioning for a few seconds with no pain. The spasm and the fall is to do with lactic acid buildup in your lower leg. Give it some time to adjust.
- If someone’s leg gets broken, after it heals will that person always walk with a limp?
- Q: Or is it possible to walk normally again? I mean broken like pushed backwards and broken.
- A: It really depends how well the leg was set initially – if all was correct then making sure the bone grows healthy (ie.lots of calcium supplements) and rest should render a healthier bone…but if the setting was incorrect or if the person began to walk on that leg too soon then the bone is still bendy (healing) and this could cause it to grow curved or misaligned causing not only a limp in later years but pain from a weakened leg. If that is the case then the Drs would probably have to re-break the bone and re-set it correctly. I hope this is not the case for you, but it was for a friend of mine.
