The cast came off today. X-rays showed a foggy area where the bone fusion has begun to take. I was told to begin using a walking boot supported by crutches for a week or two and that I could begin unsupported walking with the boot after that. In a month I could wear a shoe for walking. Follow-up in 6 weeks. Perhaps the screws will come out then. No riding, but I can being swimming. Are the lakes thawed yet?
