Hi, I'm Dr. Beth - I'm so sorry your question wasn't responded to sooner - different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about Bear's problem, and want to help. To make sure I don't miss anything, please give me a moment to review your question - I am not the fastest typist so it may take me a few moments to type out a response.

It sounds like Bear had quite an adventure, for the foot she is limping on, is she holding it up completely or will she put a little bit of weight on it when she walks?
