Well the good news is that I will be getting surgery. These x-rays shows how bad it is. There are pieces everywhere. Believe it or not, this could heal up on its own eventually, but it would take a long time and it would be a bizarrely-shaped, shortened bone in the end. The bad news is, because of the road rash, they want to wait two weeks to allow that to heal and thus prevent any additional pathway for infection. Plus healing and rehab time, it'll still be a couple months before I'm 100%. Imagine without the surgery though - many more months and never ever 100%! I'll have a stainless steel plate and a bunch of screws holding everything together. Being "older" means it will take longer to heal.

Be careful out there folks!
