He wonders ... if he'll still favor the leg after the anklet comes off...

I had a cat once (he lives with my mom now) that went outside for sunning on a leash. He eventually learned to walk a bit sideways to compensate for the trailing leash. Years later he no longer uses the leash outside, but he still walks sideways.

I can picture Neal as an old man, just like that cat, always walking just a tad sideways to avoid hitting the anklet that's no longer there.
