That will buff right out. I've got some stickers for your cast/crutches!

12 weeks, and you'll be as good as new.

Cast required?

What was the footwear you had on during the incident?

Waiting for call back from Ortho's office, doc at Patient First says still to swollen for casting but may need it.
Was wearing Sidi Canyons,


Guess I'll be looking at some heavier MX style boots next. Problem is, I need 'em wide.

Boots are a tough call as to what is really needed, I thought that my Sidi Adventure's were adequate but my accident showed the flaw. Now I have a pair that is probably a bit overkill because I have no real feel of the shifter or brake pedal....so I am still looking for a boot with the right balance.

Take it easy and do what is necessary.

Mickey, you're a tough SOB.

I can't believe you finished that trail and rode to Indy and back home on a broken leg. Damn man that's hard core.

Distal Fibula Fracture


The distal fibula fracture is a fibula fracture that arises in the joint between the fibula and the ankle. In regular terms, it is classified as an ankle fracture. A distal fibula fracture has all the symptoms related to a regular fibula fracture, with stiffness, pain and swelling in the affected region. The signs of a broken ankle can be observed by taking a look at your ankle. Rotating your ankle, standing straight, and using ankle in any way would lead to a lot of pain. Redness and swelling in the ankle can also be observed due to a distal fibula fracture. The weight bearing ability of the leg and ankle is completely compromised, with the person being unable to carry his own weight. Bruising and swelling are other common symptoms that can be noticed due to a distal fibula fracture. Overall, a fibula fracture is quite troublesome and can lead to complete bed rest and inability to carry out any of the regular tasks during the day.



Distal Fibula Fracture Treatment


The distal fibula fracture treatment can only be pursued by giving complete rest to the injured area. In fact, a distal fibula fracture requires that you avoid putting weight or pressure on your leg and ankles. Apart from giving adequate rest to the injured area, you would have to make use of casts. Casts can accelerate the healing procedure by providing a resting position to the fibula fracture. A distal fibula fracture can heal in about 12 to 24 weeks, depending upon how severe the fracture was.

Great for getting back to your life after a foot or ankle injury. it'll get you rolling up and down the isles of the store with ease.... I kinda missed it after I was able to walk.

JM, the operative word there is guys. It's what we do.

Mick, borrow that cart thingy from Jax. Our younger son was born with club feet, and had to be treated for years by the head of pediatric orthopedics at JHH. One time we came in for an appointment, and the doc was rolling around on one of those things! He had been playing in a father daughter soccer game and broke his ankle. (Nowhere near as manly as a motorcycle wreck!) He needed to keep working so he got one of those carts and actually made better time getting between exam rooms!

The people in his office even farkled it with something like this:

so he could let people know he was coming. Might come in handy at the store!
