Annie_L : 6 week check up
Diary entry posted Thu 8:51am 20 January 2011

Result!!! Much better than I had hoped for.
Had my leg re-xrayed and everything is just as it should be. I have been told that I can take the leg brace off now and start to weightbear - just a little to start off with but building up. I have also been referred for Physio as the ROM in my knee is very poor.
I finish the blood thinning injections this weekend and don't even have to think about taking a daily asprin. The only downside is that I am going to have to start using those crutches more. I sat at the hospital this morning and watched everybody hopping around on crutches and wondered why I can't do the same with any confidence. I hope now that I can put my foot down it will be easier.
The world just seems full of new possibilities today. Without the brace I can start to wear jeans again. If I am crutches I can get up the step into my hairdressers again as I am starting to look like a yeti. My next target is to get up the stairs. Fed up of sleeping downstairs and it will be nice to get the house back to normal.
I finally saw my x rays today. I had a scale 2 break. Fingers crossed, I can keep this positive mood and improvements. Not back to the hospital now for 6 weeks - 3rd March
