Comment : A little set back
Posted by Becky_L on Sat 12:07pm 30 October 2004
I understand all of your feelings about the set back. I really do. I know it is frustrating to not be able to get up and get moving. I am still in a long leg cast and got a bone stimulator. Ask the OS if there is anyway that a vendor would give them one. I don't have any insurance either and I got one. I have to wear it three hours a day for the next 6 weeks.
Some explanation is that we just aren't healing as fast as others. My OS made it sound like it was such a rare thing. Reading here and other places, I guess not so much.
I also am taking calcuim, avoiding soda, caffiene, alcohol and drinking lots and lots of water. Hoping that all of that helps also.
I have read bad and good things about the bone stimulators, but it so worth the try in order not to have surgery.
I know that this is hard, but you are not alone, we are all here for you!!!
