 Slow Progress
Robert Zambenini (47.149.219.---)   5:37pm Feb 15 2018

I had my x ray February 14th and surgeon seems very cautious. Some healing but he wants another month on only 25 percent weight bearing.
Fibula is very healed on x ray and some healing of Tibia.
In last 10 days I have had continual change for the better. I am wearing both shoes fine, and can use walker with much more ease. I am sleeping much better. So staying status quo for another month is not a big deal.

He said no walking but I can step about on walker keeping load on foot below 25%. In other words I am moving about in small steps with foot flat but no walking with rolling the feet and ankles one step after another.

I hoped for news like increasing the load bearing but will be patient.
