Oh man... that sucks. I hope it heals okay without the aid... though.. How in the world did you break it?

Are you secretly power lifting on the side?

Nope! Manufacturing flaw is the only way that it could have broken!

Titanium is very strong, but if not worked right it can be brittle.

I was always told I was one in a Million, But that can be unlucky at times

A little update.

It’s been a little over 6 months & I’m walking on my own without any help.

The ankle & leg have healed up and both are good to go, but the wrist didn’t heal right.

That’s maybe why the plate broke, So now I am scheduled for the first of two wrist surgeries to fix the broken plate & to see if they can get the wrist bones to fill in properly.

Looks like they will have to do a little bone grafting for it to work.

Surgery #1 is on 2/12/19

Then we will go from there.
