I am so happy that the big monster (external fixator) will be off on the 25th of april!
I've had it on since the day of the car accident which was 21st feb.
It's been hard to learn that I can't over plan things; and I need to take life as it comes.
I've also realised that I am so lucky to have the family I do have. And I will NEVER take my leg for granted again.
I will be honest, I've had days where I didn't want to get up out of bed. I've cried and struggled and had endless days where I think - what's the point!? but there is a point! You have to keep going! not only for myself but for my family and my pets. I need to make the best of the situation and come out the other end (hopefully) being able to work comfortably. And if not... then I will deal with it. There is literally always a way!
DO NOT GIVE UP!
I went to the hospital as arranged, I have to be chair lifted from the house to the roadside, because we have steps and obviously i am nwb, then we ride in the ambulance and get to the orthopaedics department. I go for several xrays, wait an hour or two and then the surgeon comes in to tell me that it wont be happening today (taking the fiaxtor off) because he's busy with a trauma list, fair enough, but he could of called me and told me that there was no way i would be getting the external fixator off today. so annoying. i was going to be put to sleep whilst they did it as last time i had a huge panic attack, when they tried to do stuff to it awake. so i had everything ready and told my family etc what was ganna happen. but nope... they go and tell me i have to wait another month
20th may is the next date... let's see if they keep it this time!
