Wow!! I havent been on this site in a long time. Funny to think that I couldnt go a day without the awesome support not too long ago. I have been good since the HWR. Some tendonitis issues and swelling stuff, but having the HWR was THE BEST choice ever. No more shin pain, sharp shooting pains, pain walking/moving/day to day stuff. I have swelling still around the ankle and my leg is pretty big by the end of the day, but just mild pain. I had an MRI recently which determined I have bone marrow swelling. Not sure on the prognosis, but they arent too concerned at this point. Bone is healing OK. Still see screw holes very well in the xrays. Fracture area is HUGE feeling compared to the rest of the leg. Still have numbness/no feeling in big toe and one next to it. Sensitive to touch leg sometimes - like putting pants on will floor me from pain, but then nothing later. Its odd. They say my nerves are over and mis-firing. Anyways... I think about all that I have gone through quite often. Its not over yet, but its not a daily grinding thought either. Its been a crazy long journey, and with work comp, even crazier. I have gotten back on the bike, have gone hiking, went on vacation, can walk 3-4 miles pretty well and dont always think of the ways my leg hinders me. It stil does, just not a constant thought. I go back to the doc in 6 months..... To Be Continued!
