If they are speaking of surgery that is probably an IM 'nail' or rod. I would vote for IM nail. Reason is borne our by my case where I am very slow to heal, as fracture was major and now I am nearly fully active while its now fully healed. I have good life style and certainly could not be doing all that I have done in past few months with a cast. Read up on IM nail and other surgery options like plate with screws this weekend.
Good luck, Bob
P.S, it will get better every day from now on as I remember that first day in splint, but they did surgery next morning. Could not be happier, even though it was a long number of months in wheelchair and walker.
