Yeah Dan it’s a tough one. Mine was as bad as yours – I’m going on a year and a half now and doing much much better. Lots of PT! Lot’s of ice after PT! Laser, stem, power plate, vit C, calcium, no soda or beer. Heal that bone and tissue. I still have wierd pressure feeling in upper shin area and numbness down to my big toe. You will get better. Work hard!
