Tibial Plateau Fracture and Scar Tissue

Scars can be formed in many ways and can be treated in various ways too. In Scar Tissue Removal you will learn more about scars and how different scar tissue removal methods can be used to treat scars.

First you need to know that all TPFs are different.  TPF is a generic term used to describe everything from a small depression to a complete shattering of the plateau.
You have a lot going for you in healing quickly and correctly.  Your age is a big advantage and since you were hurt playing a sport, you are probably in good health.  The best thing you can do for yourself is to follow your OS and PT instructions.
The time lag between your injury and your surgery should not have any impact on your recovery.  Right now your body is marshalling it’s resources.
Personally I wouldn’t bend my knee right now without calling my OS.  You can call his office and ask questions, he or someone in his office should be able to answer them for you.
The blood rush could be causing the calf issues.  Elevate you leg above your heart whenever possible.  Ask your OS if you can do ankle pumps (like stepping on the gas), this will help circulate the blood.
