Comment : OS Visit Today
Posted by Bonnie2 on Tue 1:14pm 5 June 2007
Took new xrays, removed my fiberglass cast. OS says hardware in place and healing is taking place. It has been 9 1/2 weeks. My leg looks like an alien leg. Did not recognize it to be mine. Lots of muscle loss and peeling skin on legs and toes. Was advised if I am going to shave it to be very careful because the skin is very sensitive and if I nick the skin I could develop an infection easily. OS gave me a script to start Physical Therapy 3 times a week. I am to wear boot on foot until swelling goes down and then progress to a gym shoe. I cannot wait to start PT even though I know it will be painful. I feel like a new person today without the cast and can see now that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
