 15 Week Update
Annette T    12:13pm Oct 1 2019

Well folks...I had another xray and follow up appointment with the OS today. Still no signs of healing of the tibia bone. Apparently at 12 weeks when the OS said "some" he meant the fibula which is showing a little healing but nothing to get excited about. So here I am at 15 weeks, NWB and not healing. I don't think things could get any worse for me. (I know that's not true but it's just how I'm feeling)

Plan now is to continue the use of the bone stimulator (I've only had it for 10 days which isn't enough time I guess to see any results) for another 4 weeks. After that I will return to the OS with a CT scan and if there are still no signs of healing then I am headed for surgery for an IM rod with screws and possibly a plate and screws of the fibula. He said he would determine that once he takes a look at the bone.

I am scared to death of this surgery and all of the unknowns associated with it. I feel like if after 15 weeks my bones didn't heal, are they really going to show signs in another 4 weeks???

So whose had this IM rod surgery? Can anyone share their surgery and experience with me?

Feeling completely and utterly devastated. I don't know why my body isn't healing.

Annette
