Man walks with broken leg for almost three decadesJune 14th, 2009 - 2:58 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 14 (ANI): Steve Webb, 49, was unaware that he had a broken leg - for 29 years.
Webb, from Dagenham, Essex had met with a motorbike accident when he was aged 20. His treatment was done and the Briton thought that the wound had healed.
However, pain resurfaced 29 years later which made him visit a hospital for a scan.
And to his shock he found out that the bone which cracked when he crashed his Suzuki T250 Hustler motorbike into a lamppost, still remained broken, reports The Telegraph.
The shock has now rather, turned to surprise, he says: “I think it’s extraordinary. Everyone tells me that having a broken leg for nearly 30 years is unheard of.
“I’ve had trouble with my leg ever since the accident but I was repeatedly told the bone had healed so I carried on walking on it.”
The plumbing merchant will have to go through an uncomfortable phase once again as he will be forced to plaster his leg and also put a metal Ilazarov frame fit around his leg. (ANI)
