 Decisions

So...I talked to the second OS doctor this morning. Just trying to get as much information about surgery as possible and still deciding between the IM Rod and plate and screws on the tibia.
I am really scared about surgery and the fact that this surgery might not even heal the bones.
Doctor senses this fear and he said to me today that I should try weight bearing as tolerated and see if I have any pain at the fracture site. He said that weight bearing helps promote bone growth and maybe that along with the bone stimulator we might start to see some callus formation. WHAT??????

What do you guys think about this? Do you think I have any shot of this actually working? I don't want to postpone the surgery because I honestly just want to get better but what if this might work and I could avoid surgery? What is this doesn't work and I'm another month out and still not getting any better. There are so many complications from surgery...all of which frighten the daylights out of me.

I don't know what to do and I really want this to be over with...like now.

Thanks for listening.
Annette
