April 3, 2006 - Vanderbilt University Medical Center - Orthopedic Trauma Clinic.
X-ray front view, approximately six weeks after removal of the intramedullar nail.  
I saw Dr. Kregor early this morning, and he is very pleased with the bone growth.  
When I look at these images, it still makes me very nervous, because the bone seems 
so flawed.  But Dr. Kregor pointed out the places where the gaps are becoming more 
fuzzy, indicating new bone growth.  I am up to full weight-bearing on the leg, and 
This morning Dr. Kregor said that I can stop wearing the boot, unless I am in a 
situation  where I think I need it.  I'll carry it with me in the car just in case.
