Comment : Week 6
Posted by Sue3 on Mon 3:51pm 12 May 2014
6-weeks post-op X-ray shows that healing has begun but gaps are not closed. Incision sites are still sore, and swelling is still persistent although it hasnít been horrible. Ice helps a lot. I was able to put a little weight on the leg during the x-ray. All the hardware is intact, nothing has moved, and itís healing okay. I didnít know this, but there are about 5 little fragments on the back of the fibula(?) that are just floating there. I donít think I feel them, or do I? Itís hard to tell sometimes.
Iím antsy for my first PT appointment but itís not for another week. Fortunately my PT is in my building, so I can make an appointment pretty much anytime. Hopefully they will get a cancellation and I can get in earlier.
The knee scooter is getting old, but I am grateful for it. Iíve had to do a lot of ďrunningĒ around at work last week, and I know this week will be the same. I donít know what I would have done without it!
Iím continuing to ice, rotate, wiggle and flex. I donít see much improvement at the moment, but Iím hopeful.
