Should Gemtide be used bone fracture
I am having compound  fracture (tibia & fibula) and on plates, rod and nails. Its been 6 weeks and xray shows slow healing. I was a smoker but left 6 weeks back only. Blood calcium is 9.88 mg/dl and pth intact is 19.20 pg/ml. Dr. advised Gemtide for 3 months for faster bone fracture healing. Should I use gemtide or wait for another month for normal callous formation in the fractured bone. Is there any side effects of using Gemtide. Is using Gemtide for a month make me start walking after a month?

Gemtide (Tereparatide) is not for fracture healing. It is for the treatment  of severe osteoporosis not responding to all other treatments. Study it on internet. lot of information is available.

Contact your surgeon or his assistant  for this advice. Do not follow somebody else's advise for this until he is your well known well wisher
