this boot is made for walkin'...

Just finished the latest round trip to Odessa.  My doc was finally satisfied enough with my bone mending to give me the green light on light (30%) weight bearing for the next 5 weeks.  My fibula is completely healed but the big ol' tibia still has a ways to go.

FYI - that first frankenboot they gave me cost my insurance company $250 and me $100...and I hated it because it was very uncomfortable and heavy.  I bought this one from Amazon Prime for 80 bucks and my doctor and I both approve.  87,99,73,0,C

Very glad you're healing and making progress. Of course I gotta say be careful. Happy 4th to all!

OMG, how can you accurately judge 30%. Yes, be careful and happy 4th to everyone. And no drinking John. You might misjudge and overdo it. :-)

You can kick some serious beeehind with that boot....but then you'd end up back in Odessa I guess, so nevermind.

You are going to have as much time in with the erector set as I had with the bones stuffed back in the hole, set and a cast put on it.Sort of makes one wonder...BTW, don't get all cocky like I did and earn another 2 months of down time.
