Comment : Hardware Removal
Posted by Annie on Sat 9:49am 29 October 2005


Hi Janice!

I saw my OS last Monday regarding HW removal. I am SO happy to read of how well your removal is going; it gives me great hope for mine. My OS x-rayed my ankle to make sure my HW was not backing out (it wasn't), and we discussed in length all the pros and cons of the removal, and then I told him I wanted it out. I am VERY nervous about a fourth surgery in 1 1/2 years, but I can't shake the feeling that my ankle will just feel better without all that stuff in there. And, as I read your posts, I really get encouraged. I think if I was basically a couch potato, and really not too physical, this would probably be a non-issue. But I intend to continue striving to get back to all my physical activities, and hopefully in the way I did them pre-break, hence my decision to proceed towards HW removal. It will probably be done somewhere around the middle of December, since we are just now getting going on our kitchen addition and need to get that dried in before the snow really starts to fly. Thank you so much for continuing to post on your recovery Janice, it is so helpful. I know this HW issue has to be confusing for a bunch of us out there in MBL land. All the best to you, and I will be smiling as I picture you back on the ice again, without the restrictive feeling of the HW. Have a wonderful time!!! Annie
