your experience sounds similar to mine. I was very active with weight training and killer hour long spinner classes 3 – 4 times a week as well as power walking.
I have a plate and 8 screws as well as bone cadaver grafting. I had the operation on Jan. 27 and am struggling with ROM. I cannot imagine having the hardware taken out. Going through another operation would be hell.
the inactivity is hard to take isn’t it?
