Jim - Are they going to replace the pin in your ankle? If so, what will that do as far as your progress thus far?
The Dr. has ordered a Cat Scan to get a look at how much healing has taken place, if there is sufficient healing and the fracture is stable he will do nothing, if the fracture has not healed he will probably have to replace the pin. which will set me back a few weeks. there is no pain and no swelling on that side of my ankle, so I'm feeling positive about the outcome of the Cat Scan.
Today was a great day for a bike ride!
