Just a heads up, so you're not too disappointed, when i went back for the follow up X-Ray I was expecting to see some real progress/healing...that wasn't the case. I was pretty bummed when I saw that it looked almost exactly the same as it did the first time. All you will probably see is a small "cloud" around the break; blood and calcium starting to form. Sure, it's healing, but I was not at all expecting to see.
It felt well enough after 8 weeks to get back out, though. I rode the last two weekends the mountain here was open...as long as it was groomed everything was good, when it turned to slush and got choppy, that's when it started to hurt. Needless to say, I was sore for a couple of days after, but all is good now. Good luck!
