Hi Nicky, so good to hear from you! My doc said it shouldn't be a problem at my checkup today, so we shall see :) anyway, he said to just take my latest x-ray when I go just in case.
I am a bit apprehensive about the swelling in-flight, but what can you do. I'm tired of waiting to live my life again. Did you use any kind of compression stocking or bandage?
Sounds like you're doing well despite the hardware irritations- I find that my upper tibia screws really bother me when I try to walk at my pre-fracture pace, and as a fast walker (for now just in spirit) that's a bit disappointing. But at least I've gained immeasurable patience for the slow among us!
Hope you're getting some spring activity in your garden!
