I had my 3 month x ray since my IM Nail and still no real closure. Surgeon says not worried as leg looks healthy and something must be going on in there. He also said its far to early to consider any other drastic actions.
So I was outfitted with BiometŪ OrthoPakŪ Non-invasive Bone Growth Stimulator System.
I wear this as much as 24/7. Its small like a cell phone with two leads you stick on opposite your fracture site area. I clip the unit on my shoe and hardly know its even there. No interference with my pacemaker or any feeling its even there.
I did not find much about bone growth stimulators here so I will post my experience as I hopefully progress. Next x ray is in 30 days.
