Surgery for broken tibia - fibia
Organized by: Travis Krueger
On June 10 I went to step outside onto my porch of a house that we just moved into not knowing the steps were rotten in some places. I fell and and my wife took me to the hospital where they did X-ray's and scans and told me that my leg was broken in 5 places. Including the tibia and fibia bones in my lower right leg. The Dr informed me that they would be transferring me to Galveston to a different hospital where they would do the surgery to place a rod through the tibia bone and the fibia bone was shattered but would heal on its own. He said they were more concerned about the tibia bone because its the bone that holds all the weight for the leg. So I had the surgery and now being told that I will be in a wheel chair for the next 2 to 3 weeks and then a walker. That's all fine but I was the one who watched our 4 month old daughter while my wife worked and now my wife is out of work because I can't handle our daughter myself and so now she has to stay home to take care of me and our daughter . The money raised will be used for bills and for diapers and stuff for our daughter.
