dislocated toe

(4 discussions)

My son is a very competitive wrestler who has problems with a big toe that dislocates all the time. Is there a brace made tohelp keep the toe stabilized and prevent the constant dislocation?

    I broke my leg about14 months ago. Before I injured myself I was pretty active. I am wondering what kind of exercises I can do at the gym so I don’t hurt myself?

    I had an open fracture of the tibia and fractured the fibia. I had a rod inserted with screws and sfter four months there was still a non union of the tibia one doctor wanted to exchange the rod and another wanted to just remove the screws and push the joint together.. I opted for the simpler op and after the op discovered that I now have a one inch piece of fibia missing .Doctor asures me no problem..Can anybody comment on this

    I broke four months ago both tibia and fibia. The pain has been constant, still use a cane to walk. I have a rod through my tibia and 4 screws up and down. I have had blood clotts and ‘supposedly’ the veins are damaged in the valves causing reflux of the blood. What doctors, treatment or other works for other patients????

    On 2/13/97 I had a fibula/tibia break. Was in hospital for 10 days due to Hospital staph infection, thencame down with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy – a lifetime disease. Found the Dr. only repaired the tibia and just left the fibula hang apart – it will never mend. (Workmen’s Comp.cost containment)Has anyone heard of a secondary repair procedure that would be successful? Maybe reduce pain?

    In september 98 I was in a severe car accident where my left leg went through the windshield of the car I was riding in resulting in a broken tibia and fibia along with other injuries. 8 years later I am just now feeling the debths of my injuries have been only 16 at the time of the accident, I had no idea how much trouble this would cause. 2 children and several falls later I have broken all of the hardware in my leg. If anyone has had there hardware removed and would suggest I do the same please send me an e-mail. I cannot go on living like this

    i broke my tibia in a car accident due to a drunk driver, it was broke in the lower region of my leg. I had a cast on for the past 3 weeks and now I have another walking cast on for three 3 more weeks before I can walk again. my doctor says I have new bone growth but I am thinking to myself is my leg going to be alright to walk on in 3 more wks? it still hurts just a lil when I move around, but I cannot put no pressure on it, this is my first broken bone and I am just curious about the healing process.

    At 32, and from the UK, I broke my tibia and fibia last year whilst cross country running. I slipped on a muddy patch and landed on a stone that became some sort of pivit. I was very lucky – without my mobile phone or people around I was totally up [email protected] creek. Luckily someone walking their dogs found me and called an ambulance etc. The docs put a rod down my ankle and pinned it at the top and bottom. Also I have 2 lovely scars down the side of my leg caused by a thing called a fashiottomi – not sure of the spelling?? 2 operations in a week with the talk of a 3rd skin graft that never happend!! The hardest thing(apart from the week in the hospital)was the feeling of being stranded. The freedom of walking is a wonderful thing! I started going to the pool every day – just to get out of the house, and to try and do a little more than the day before. I really wanted to improve – really, really, really wanted it like nothing else ever before. I also practised my walking every day, in all weathers, around the block for 30 minutes with my crutches – after 4 months I was down to one crutch! After 7 months I was walking like before the accident (well 85%). 12 months down the line – I walk really quite well… cycle 50 miles a week, and put it down to a spot of British bad luck. A year on, I still feel I am recovering. I can’t run any more – but I’ve accepted it. I can play a bit of squash – albeit with lots of hopping and sly shots. I look at the world a bit different now. I understand the hardship of the poor fellows who are wheelchair bound for their whole lives. What else helped???? Music really helped! Listening to songs that I used to listen to when I was 15/16 brought back a lot of happy memories. I really feel it helped me recover.Staying off the pain killers Staying off the alcohol: Alcohol makes people fall over!! A shed load of beer down my throat would not do anything but probably put me back in the last place I wanted to be.Trust in the docs: Now and again I’d question if I was getting better?? But really the docs knew a lot more than I did. In the end they were right. Watching the movie “The Life of Brian”. There’s that song at the end of the film when Eric Idle is on the cross – he’s about to die and he’s cheering everyone up!! I love it!!! “Look on the bright side of life…” – It could have been your back you broke. Good luck if you read this and your journey of recovery has just started!!! Hope you make it!! I’m sure you will.Damian Wood

    I shattered both tibia and fibia right above my ankle last april 20, 2007–I cannot recommend anything only share what has helped me. First I got no rod he (Doc) put in 2 plates….and 16 screws—would like to get one out (plate_)tha hurts all the time…..anyway the Doc said he was estatic about my good bone development—-I did take a product call Plus by mannatech(not even sure that is spelled correct–I do not sell It–I only take it and then a really good calcium from a healthe food store—Plus the Doc recommende I use a bone stimulator(do not sell this –just use it –they are exspensive but it works ( it is a new thing not all Docs have excepted I am told ) –I think all of this have really helped my bone knit back together

    I broke my tibia and fibia 12/29/07. I’m at 8 weeks, and I am going to Dr. Monday for xray’s. The new bone started growing at 6 weeks and I hope the bone is growing properly. Attitude is the key, this is a process that is tough, but I have learned to try and be as positive as possible. I still have my moments. I had one breakdown when I initially came home. It feels overwhelming, but I took it 1 day at a time and it goes by. I wish this on nobody. I was on Oxycodine which I recommend getting off as soon as you don’t need it. It constipates you and makes you mentally miserable. Well Good luck to all, and stay positive.
