Bilateral Tibial Stress Fractures, 5+ months non-healing, 22 years of active service


Registered Member

I have bilateral stress fractures that haven't healed in 5 months despite daily use (3 hours per leg) of a bone stimulation device (electromagnetic pulse emitter) for 4 months. If my L&R tibia do not heal in the next 2-3 months I'll be looking at a MEB. I also have a history of multiple TBIs (1 in combat/IED) and chronic PTSD.

If anyone has a similar situation I'd be interested to hear your progress, insight and timeline.
