    This makes me think of a really crappy intersection on Route 29 near Baltimore, (Glen Burnie maybe? Can't remember now). Kind of a long-shot, where'd this happen?

    Scooter should rent for about $90 a month and hopefully you only need it for one to two months.
    There's also a strap on the thigh peg leg. Make sure when you get a walking boot it is properly fit. They may want to charge as much as $500 for a boot that should cost no more than $125 - $175 so if it's part of your co-pay tell them you are self-insure on the boot or buy it yourself on the internet. Ask the doc or PA how soon they'll advance you to the boot and what brand/model so you can do the research if you'll have to pay out of pocket.
    Elevation and ice are your friends. Avoid chronic swelling. Ortho work is good these days for most who stay within limits on recovery. Good luck and may it be a fast and complete a recovery.

    Scooter rent $ 90 a month? Sounds like a total rip-off. After all, my electric hospital bed was $ 200 for a month. 7 months later, almost fully recovered from fractured femur. Yes, that is MY bike-avatar.
