Dec 30, 2019 Update
Visited the surgeon's office. They removed my cast from the operation then all the staples and stitches. Replaced the cast with a new one that is fiberglass and KTM orange.
Incisions look good and are healing nicely. I'll be in this cast for two more weeks. After that, I'll be using a removal boot. That will enable showering of the leg (yeah!) and the ability to sit around the house with it removed for comfort. Can't wait!
Two weeks down and ten more to go with no load at all on the leg. That's a long time on crutches.
