More information on path forward

So here is the plan ahead the Doctor set up.
-4 weeks from now I can start putting weight on it, (40Lbs) as tolerated. Then every 2 days after that I can add an additional 20Lbs as tolerated.
-Week of 12 November I go back in for a check up.
-Week of 17 December I go back to get the screws removed.
Then shortly after the screws are removed, end of late Dec/first part of Jan, I will move to a different boot, less rigid for several weeks. Then back to normal shoes.
It looks like the biggest problem will be building the strength back up in my leg after no use for so many months. My calf muscles in that leg are already atrophied and only going to get worse. I was originally scheduled for a 2 day Rawhyde training class in March but the Doc didn't feel that the leg would be strong enough to take the abuse and if I had any setbacks I would most likely miss the class. So with that said I am going to reschedule sometime later next year so I don't lose my $.
Doing a little better every day and the pain continues to decrease as well.
