Hello Iam 27 years old and about 2 months ago I fracture my fibula playing soccer. The doctor call it a spiral fracture and it happens to be at the bottom very close to were the fibula ends and meets with the foot. my question is that the doctor originally said it would take about 4 to 6 weeks and last week was already the eight week. After reviewing the x-rays the doc said that I would still need at least four more weeks, is there a reason for my slow recovery the doc said I should be healing fast since Iam young, but he says Iam not healing fast. Is there a reason for that???
