I snapped one of the knobbles (that's not a medical term!!) off just above your break and crack my shin bone a few inches down from the knee joint whilst skiing in Italy. They X-Rayed me in a mountainside shed, told me it was broken, made me lay on my front, splodged some very cold plaster on the back of my leg, wrapped a bandage round the front and dropped me back at my hotel. They gave me some crutches and an evelope with my x-rays in but that was it, no pain killers, nothing. I managed to make out "30 days without complication" as a prognosis in the X-ray stuff, so wasn't too worried.
When I got home and took them to the hospital, the consultant said "oh yes, an L shaped metal plate, some bone from your hip and non weight bearing for 3 months" Holly sh*t I, I wasn't expecting that!
Still, that was about 12 years ago, it stopped me skiing for one season but it's never hampered me cycling, I can ride all day without problems, I don't cycle competitively, but I've done the South Downs Way in a day, the Coast to Coast in 4 days and 8 day journey across the Alps and apart from the odd twinge it's been fine, so I'm sure you'll heal just fine, they told me it is 18 months before it's as strong as it going to get, but I was doing plenty long before then It's just a bit of a nuisence to be out of action for a while!
