 Re: HWR Surgery
Gazebo    3:34am Jul 27 2017

I understand your fear, I had some of mine out earlier this year. It was done as days surgery and after a few days of elevation the swelling had gone down a lot. The whole process was minor compared to the initial surgery. I think I was afraid because I was worried it would be a retrograde step in my recovery when I had been progressing so well. In reality it was a very small step backwards towards even more improvement since. I'm pretty much back to pre break normal now - just need to get fitter! I'm sure you will feel better post op too, just take it easy afterwards and follow the after care instructions. Best wishes.

30/4/16 in Canada spiral# distal 3rd L tib, flake# L fib; avulsion# distal R fib.
1/5/16 IM nail 3 screws to L tibia. 6/5/16 back to NZ. 12/5/16 short cast. Late May PT for ROM. 22/6/16 cast off PWB. 25/7/16 boot off FWB.
18/4/17 2 distal screws out
