... but my real question is why do people with improperly-healed-bones limp? Does it actually hurt to walk? Can the leg not hold the weight anymore? Is it a balance thing? Why the limp?
I've read up on bone healing on Wiki, and I know that my boy's smoking habits would have complicated the bone growth, etc etc. But for describing his movement, I want to know why the limp is happening, why he's not putting weight on it.
