I broke my tibia last saturday playing soccer. I play soccer 4 times a week year round. I get in about 15 ski days per year. I will be down for 8 weeks. Doc said I should be able to do both.

I am glad it wasn't during the winter, but bummed it happened in prime soccer season.

Anyone have any experience recovering?

Sorry about your fracture. If you go to and search on the word tibia you might get some useful threads and connect with others recovering from recent similar injury. Was your break near where boot top would be?

boot top is better than lower leg. My Mrs. broke her fibia a couple of years ago and it had a heck of a time healing due to movement of the foot in her walking boot. When she finally took the Doc's advice and went easy, it healed correctly.
