Not sure of the healing process. When can you walk on it? I'm sure your tripping partners will haul the gear as you hobble along behind.
ps Bummer man. Sorry to see it. Mind if I send the picture to my girlfriend? It'll gross her out!

Wow! I think I won't complain about my arthritis pains tonight!
Sorry to see that, but glad you have it fixed and hope you heal well and as quickly as possible. I know, from friends who have had the injury, that it takes a long time and is a painful healing process.
Bummer! Be pushing everything off to the right on the golf course.
Joy is a great teacher, but so is dispair. Wonder is a great teacher, but so is confusion. Hope is a great teacher, but so is disillusionment. And life is a great teacher, but so is death. To deny yourself any of those in any aspect is not experiencing life totally.
So sorry to see you are out of commission this year. It will undoubtedly be a long, slow rehab process. But you have a goal to aim for and that's a healthy leg capable of withstanding strenuous portages for many years to come, beginning in 2013. Best wishes throughout the recovery process.
