I had my surgery 6 days ago. I am icing and getting around okay on crutches with my leg straight (as it goes). I am doing my exercises and see the doctor after the holiday weekend. Things look good. One month out from my accident and I can now get up and down my 2nd story stairs without crawling! Yay, me! You can't imagine how much nicer that is than crawling up and down. I just took my 2nd shower this week. I have a strategy that works now and I don't feel like I am risking my life doing it. Things are looking up, although my summer will be full of crutches and gimpiness. Hopefully the next appointment is full of positives.
After 8 days of Covid, I woke up feeling decent today. Still have some congestion, but no headache and have some energy.
GG - glad you're hanging in there.
Kahlua - glad you're making progress after surgery. I had a summer years ago like yours - no surgery, but the weekend after school was out I dislocated my knee. I spent most of that summer on crutches and my vacation in a big immobilizer brace.
Such a nice thread..... love the healing dust travlingfar!
My breast cancer update: had lumpectomy and thought margin was clear, but pathologist found "sliver" margin that was not more than 2mm so had 2nd surgery and recovery fine. Just went yesterday for my "tattoo" to start radiation in a week or so. This has been a long journey.
I did get great news yesterday though... my cancer policy that I had purchased sent me a big check! It also will pay part of my radiation costs. That with my state insurance will take care of the bills.
