Went for the first x ray since the surgery yesterday and we got to count the screws and plates together since the doc lost count while doing it. Two plates and fifteen screws and I do set off metal detectors. Set the one off at the courthouse yesterday. He told me early on that I would be on crutches for six weeks but yesterday he extended that for another four. Dang it!!! Got to lose the black air boot and go back to shoes but the foot looks like a balloon next to the good leg. He told me no weight on the leg so I told him I guess I shouldn't mention that I'd been walking without crutches for almost a week. So the wife has me back on the crutches and everytime she looks the other way, I lose one or both and forget where I put them.
Anyway, the x ray of the tibia showed no fracture line at all and the fibia showed a little misalignment but he said that was normal and acceptable.
