good morning

Posted , 24 users are following.

Thanks to everyone for their kindness and good wishes. Surgery went well but he found a couple of things that weren't expected. There was small crack in the top of the tibia which will require me to wear an immobilizer and use a walker for a couple of weeks. I will only be allowed to use just a toe touch method of walking during that time. Before surgery I discussed the scar tissue that was left from the steel late and screws he found a few inches of muscle that was fused to the bone and wouldn't move causing a lot of pain. His explanation made a lot of sense. He said he just sliced it off the bone so ur can heal properly but it will probably create as much discomfort as the knee but will stop the pain that it had been causing and heal properly. Well, I just hit the button for for the pain meds to kick in so better stop Before the spell starts looking like a 6 yr old. Thanks again for the well wishes
