Hi all, I had my plate taken out yesterday and the procedure went well. I was awake and had local freezing. After surgery my surgeon said I will be back in the boot for 16 days untill sutures are removed. I can't take it if to sleep or shower. It seems like a huge step back for me as I just got walking in a shoe with a cane pretty good. Before he said the plate would be removed and then I would be walking in a few days after. Now he wants non wb 3 days and then only partial wb with boot on until June 22.
It has been 6 mo this for me and I just feel I can't take much more of this. I'm normally quite positive but now am pretty depressed.My hopes of enjoying my summer and walking without aid are diminishing. Did anyone else have to be back in boot after hardware removal?
I'm very sore swollen and cranky!!
