It was a really hard day to get through but life moves on and I am trying to redirect my focus on the things that I can control. I go back to the ortho in two weeks to have the cast removed, the leg examined and new xrays without the cast on. After that I will get a new cast put on. He mentioned maybe letting me have a boot for a week but since the boot won't equal weight bearing I think I would just rather have the second cast put on immediately. That way it's some what protected from any potential second injuries and I won't be tempted to put any weight on it.
I was actually quite uncomfortable last night while trying to sleep. Just achy pains and numbness which I'm not entirely sure what that means. I was going to take some Tylenol but I didn't and tried to sleep through it. I think I need to get out of the house this weekend a little too - just to get some movement and not sit on the couch the entire weekend and mope.
I think you are right - our bodies naturally heal themselves so there has to be SOME healing. But I guess Dr didn't see any new netting or new bone calcification beginning yet. Dr said he will see chalkiness or cloudiness near and around the fracture. I haven't seen the xrays either - so in two weeks I plan on asking to see them.
This week has been such a roller coaster I haven't stopped to think about how tired or not tired I am feeling. I have to begin to pay closer attention.
Thanks for your support Matt.
