To be honest, it wasn’t healing good because I didn’t do a good job of staying off my feet.  Even though I was in the boot, I still walked around fine.  I don’t have any pain bc of the fracture, so I walked around often like it was normal.  I just didn’t do any running or working out for 2 months.  

Nothing was said about bones moving.  I did not have a period of non-weight bearing.  They’re gonna end up casting me now bc they want me to be non-weight bearing for 3-4 weeks.  

No excuse, but they didn’t really warn me not to walk around and all.  They just mentioned no running or jumping.  

And I’m not sure of what else is going on.  I would hope they reviewed the CT scans thoroughly to verify.
