I feel your pain Annette! :( Like you my first doctor screwed up and even though the bone was showing absolutely no signs of healing, he just kept telling me to give it time! -_- Well 5 months with nothing being done and no healing, I was fed up and went to get a second opinion who told me the bone was too far apart to even start to heal and the screws in the rod were keeping it that way. Now I feel like although I got injured on 3/15/2019, I feel like my starting point is really on September 2019, because that is when I started to show any sign of improvement. :(

So for both of us we still have the long healing road plus five months of wasted time where we were basically just invalids with nothing to do. Itís frustrating losing five months of your life. Also please know you can sue your first doctor for freaking punitive damages and malpractice for basically doing nothing for your leg, knowing their was no progress (no healing), and still doing absolutely nothing. This caused you too lose five months of your life to being confined to a bed/couch or having to go out on painful crutches.

I hope we are both able to walk without pain one day! :)
