 More Xrays, more fractures
SBH (204.194.207.---)   12:03pm Oct 4 2017

I went to the clinic for a check up to make sure my fractures were staying in proper alignment today. My alignment is fine but hairline fractures of my anterior tibia showed up that had not been seen on earlier xray. They say such fractures don't show up at first. I don't know whether they missed them last time or what, but I was assured that my present treatment in a full leg cast was the correct treatment. Bad news is that I may have to wear cast a "little" longer. When I asked how long that might be the physicians assistant was very non committal and when I pressed her she said we will try and get you in a short cast by Christmas. Yikes!

9/4 FX of 5th metatarsal, fibula and tibia-- splinted
9/15 First Full leg plaster cast
10/18 Second cast; long leg to the groin
