I had two opinions in NH and they both said the same thing. I did hear good things about NE Baptist though and I'll probably give your doctor a call.

It is the left foot so that makes the driving easier.

I hope that your xrays go well.

Thanks again.
Xray went well showing that the fusing is working well. After 10 weeks of NWB I am not full weight bearing using the boot. Absolutely no pain when I had to stand barefooted. Dr. wants me to use crutches for 2 weeks just for stablily not for any weight support. I start PT tomorrow and I am pleased with the outcome. Dr. Leavitt is absolutely the best, dedicated foot surgeon in Boston. I highly recommend that you schedule an appt with him.
