Saw the doctor today after wearing my "boot" for six weeks and he wants me in it another six weeks!!! He said he doesn't think it is healing as he hoped and he doesn't really think the boot will do that much more but my ankle is weak it needs stability. I have to wear it when I go out but he said around the house I could probably go without it. If this is still painful or a problem in any way down the road they will simply go in and remove the chip. Ain't life grand!
