As someone who has broken a Fibula and Tibia I know exactly how he feels. It took me 3 months for the bone to heel and after that I had to rebuild my calm muscle and for about 3 or 4 weeks I got an aching pain in the arch of the foot. About the only permanent damage to my leg is a 17cm long scar and some partial loss of feeling on one side of my foot which I do not usually notice during the day. The only way it affects my training is that it is more difficult for me to kick with the ball of the foot with turning kicks because my toes bend back to a slightly lesser effect forcing me to adjust the angle of attack slightly for my right leg turning kick. But then again I don't have a career a full contact MMA fighter.
