    Bummer.

    Hope he's back on his feet soon.

    This may help him get moving around sooner than with crutches.

    Good luck,heal fast.

    Son of a bitch, ROM.

    You are in my and GiddyUp's thoughts. I did a tibia gig 2 years ago - I'm feeling for you. Good thoughts and a strong recovery.

    Heal fast. When I broke my arm, a homeopathic physician friend of mine recommended a homeopathic remedy. Its not a drug, and she reported healing of bone many times faster. I was going to try it, its not like I had anything to lose. When I went back for x rays 4 weeks after my surgery, my doc was very surprised by how fast I healed. I broke my arm on March 12th 2008, had surgery March 19 with a plate and 13 screws in a badly shattered distal humerus, went back to work (I am a chiropractor), April 2nd. I went back to work before the doc gave me clearance, I haven't lost a screw yet.

    >>Symphytum: This remedy is best known for helping broken bones rejoin and heal. It should be taken after a bone is set to ensure proper joining of the bone. (A common recommendation is to take it several times in the first few days, then once a week while the bone is healing.) It is also useful in many cases when pain persists in old, healed fractures.<<
