Hello and thank you for your question. It appears that the Expert you were hoping to speak with is not currently available. I have stepped in to assist you in their absence so that you have a prompt reply to your question. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) Do you happen to have a picture of this area? 2) Is she walking on this limb or limping? I am opening up an offer for a phone call if you think this might be preferable for you. Many people prefer to chat on the phone. Either is fine, and we can continue chatting here if you prefer. Just let me know.
