fractured fibula

Hi,

I have fractured my fibula and am going to get a plate and screws put in tomorrow 9-21-04. I am very attive and really need to know if this is the best path for me. my doctor did a stress test on the foot and I "failed" because my tibula moved from its correct possition over to the side about 1 - 2 cm. Is this the only test that the doctor should do to determine whether I need only a cast or plate and screws? any help would be great.
thanks
richard
