You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply.
I understand your concern, John, but the fibula isn't weight bearing and so only in the rarest of instances (badly displaced fragments that might injure surrounding tissue, e.g.) is it addressed surgically. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
Thank you, John. A callus will form to bridge the fibula. My best wishes for quick healing for Ruby! I can't set a follow-up in this venue so please return to our conversation - even after rating - with an update at your convenience. You can bookmark this page for ease of return.
You're quite welcome.
Thank you for your kind accept. I appreciate it. You may receive an inappropriate follow-up from the site ostensibly sent by me. It wasn't and I apologize in advance should you receive it.
