Strange break when I didnt come unclipped on SA

This pic was taken 4 weeks after I broke it. I walked around as they told me it wasnt broken. Trust what your body is telling you!
I told the doc it hurt!

orthapedic MD told me once that the fibula is non load bearding. he told me that after my compound tib/fib fracture was set and the fib moved out of place about a week later.

hurt like hell when it moved but they never reset it. it healed with a bit of a bulge - but i'm still kicking 15 years later with no hitch in my gitty up!

heal fast good man... there's trail to be ridden!
