Oblique paterned Fractured tibia seen. Usually tibial fracture is prone to an open fracture because it is a subcutaneous bone so there is higher risk of infection post surgical. With this X ray It seem like remodelling stage is this. So i suggest home ambulation, and physiotherapy to facilitate healing
Fixation is good and stable Continue same physiotherapy for another month Toe touch weight bearing with Walker after 6weeks Call for review after one month
Thank you doctor
