I broke my tibia and my Fibula in my ankle area. I went to ER and then followed up with my DR. He told me that i will have to have surgery and scheduled it in a week and a half because my ankle is to swollen to do it any sooner. My friend that is in the health field says that he shouldnt wait that long because of bone marrow leaking? I am not sure what she is talking about or even if it was an issue can you please help. I have been getting a little worried about that.
