I would ask the Physical Therapist you are seeing to give your some insight. You may have lost some height on one side of the tibia from the fracture. Hard to say without seeing it. But the PT should be able to tell you.

PT is very helpful, but ran a search on this type of repair and possible outcomes. It was not found that this type of repair would result in a Q angle of my knee….which is what has happened. I am now looking at a full knee replacement 2-3 years after the partial, and that sucks. This is why I was reaching out to see if this was a normal, or at least a possible, outcome. By the way, the tibial plateau fracture was from a simple twisting break, not traumatic car accident that may have caused miss-alignment.
