I did go see the doctor today and got an x-ray. The report was pretty good. The spot where the screw was removed has almost completely filled in. And the original break site has filled in faintly, but isn't solid yet, with just a small gap still. The doctor said its pretty much on schedule, and that I should be able to get the plate removed in the fall (around a year after the break) and to come back in three months. Swelling and pain is normal. So i guess that's just something I have to live with for awhile yet.
That's all for now!
