6 1/2 Weeks Post-Op... A lot of ground to make up... And a screw

Went to see the Dr today. Due to the re-injury, I have a lot of ground to make up. The good news is that my tibia has healed. I can now put some weight on my leg, but still won't be able to walk for another bunch of weeks. Also, some of the swelling has gone down.
The bad news is the screw must come out, but, not until I'm back on my feet. It's sticking out this far...
Since the delay in my recovery, the doctor basically wants me to double time my recovery. Instead of being on the CPM (the bending machine) for 1 month and then going to physical therapy after, he wants to to knock them out at the same time.

So, that's the update on Frankenknee.
Colin will start his meds tomorrow morning.

Eww. Icky pics of the knee and screw, but maybe it's good recovery will be doubled up and get moved along faster?
