Here are some questions/issues:
If it wasn't a fracture, what was on the bone scan? I know it can pick up cancer, infection, arthritis, etc. It would be nice to know so I can avoid doing whatever it was again. I don't ever want to be stuck in that boot for two months again. I feel like I have wasted two months for nothing.
I know you just want to dismiss the hip height issue but my right hip is higher than my left. My left shoe shows more wear than my right. I get shin splints a lot more on my right side. My left ankle (outer) tends to get sore. I think there is an imbalance issue that needs addressing.
Do I need a different arch support in my running shoes (other than the ones that come in them)? Should I try a stability shoe? A more cushioned shoe?
I realize that 6 weeks no running/jumping is standard for a fracture but if there was no fracture is it really important to wait that long?
Here is the reply:
You raise good questions and I'm so glad that you have taken the time to ask. Because you have a number of questions I think it would be better if I give you a call back and address each one to your satisfaction. I will attempt to reach you today or tomorrow
Why he couldn't have taken the time yesterday to answer in person, I really don't know. GRRRRR.
