    Well if you let it go too long, the broken surfaces will heal over, and then they won't knit properly when someone finally sets them. I'm luck enough to be a fast healer, plus I don't have any of the usual vices (caffeine, tobacco, alcohol) that inhibit recovery from skeletal injuries. I also had the bones set within a few days of my break, and was in really good health at the time, so things turned out well. My doctor said it was the cleanest break he'd ever seen, and complimented me on my bones. It was weird to say the least.
    My friend had a really gnarly break shortly after mine. He broke his right leg in a similar spot, but is super skinny and athletic, and his skin was so tight (and he kept disobeying doctors orders about rest so much) that the stitches wouldn't close and the hardware kept poking out through his surgical incision. It was well over six months before they finally got him put back together.

    As a kid in high school I was taking martial arts classes and one time during physical education class decided to show off in front of my pals and of-course girls in the class. Well I was doing some jump kicks and landed badly on my foot with my entire body weight shifting to the side. I ended up braking my ankle. My "awesome" phys ed. teacher told me to go home!
    Did not feel pain at first due to body going into shock. But when I got to the changing room my foot started to swell up and I started suffocating when tries to take off snicker from a broken foot.
    Well after changing I limped home with broken foot, alone. My home was about 2 or 3 miles from school. So I had a fun experience getting there. And of-course as soon as my parents saw my foot they drove me to a hospital where I was told that I had a broken ankle (fibula if I'm not mistaken). The good thing is while I was limping home I managed to set the bone in place

    Hehe, we'll have to save that for one of swords' threads larry. XD
    Thanks for all your words of support, everyone. I'm already walking on it and I can feel the difference; I don't have to concentrate on keeping my foot from pointing out to the side. The stitches still hurt though. I certainly won't be running any marathons today. :P
