The cast has to be on for another five weeks, but it’s 50-50 at this point. My fracture is comminuted with a 6mm depression, and my (fractured) fibula juts out instead of aligning with my femur.

When the prospect of surgery was first brought up seriously, I felt like I was sucker punched and the severity of the injury set in more. But now that I’ve had over a week to process it, I’m feeling more comfortable with the idea, especially if it’ll produce better long-term results.
