How long can you go without surgery on broken leg?
I am 39 years old male.
I broke my leg 4 days ago playing badminton above ankle. (dangling like an octopus leg)
Went to hospital immediately.
But doctors keep postponing the operation due to inflammation.
I am sick worried that the fracture might actually be incurable due to late surgery.
Does anyone know how long you can go without surgery on fractured limb?

Months, nothing happens, they cannot operate while the leg is swollen.

They usually put broken bones in a splint
Cast so it doesn't move.

Just checking, you had the advice of medical professionals, guys with years of experience and training, but thought "hey, I don't believe them, I'll ask random strangers on the internet for their medical opinion". You, sir, are a massive fu cking retard.

It's too late to set it but never too late for surgery.
