 Not great news
Annette T    8:07am Aug 7 2019

Well I had my 6 week follow up yesterday and even though I wasn't expecting any miracles, the doctor told me that there is no new bone growth with the tibia after 7 weeks since injury. NONE AT ALL. He said this is normal but man it was so incredibly disappointing and discouraging. I wasn't expecting much and I know I'm not anywhere near walking yet...but I can't believe there was NO new bone growth at all. Definitely feeling defeated and I'm so worried about the future and whether I will really ever walk again. What is wrong with me?

How did you guys get through the news of not healing? I don't know what else I can do to promote the bone growth. He said the insurance company won't consider bone simulator machines until the 6-9 month mark of non union. I think if there is a way for a machine to help jump start the healing than why is there a time frame? Stupid insurance companies - they don't really care about the patient at all.

I know I have to stay positive but it's getting harder. And I know that other people have it way worse then I do and I should be grateful but I am mad and angry and every other emotion under the sun honestly. Dr feels pretty confident that my bone will heal but he doesn't know how long it's going to take. Dr said that the bone is perfectly aligned it just needs to begin netting new bone together. Does anyone know what else I should be doing to help with this process? Dr said no smoking and no weight on it. I don't do either of these things, although with the stress of this entire situation smoking doesn't sound like a bad idea at this point!!

Thanks for listening.
Annette
