This week's surgeon appointment

Thursday, September 29, 2011

Another trek to the surgeon's office. He's not letting me see the PA anymore, so I guess he wants to keep an eye on the incision. I think I have 3 holes still - one is an inch or so deep and wide and does tend to hurt. The wound vac is apparently starting to work. He took out the rest of the staples because my skin was reacting to them - and they have been in 5 weeks. The wound vaccuum bandage will hold everything together so that is good.

He did keep me on the antibiotics and pain meds. But I don't go back for two weeks now-and we will do X-rays then to see if I have started to build any bone yet.

Not too much going on for the next week. A lunch with Indy Sparkers (yeah!) as long as I am not on too many pain meds. That will be a nice break to keep me from going stir crazy.

Have a good weekend! Diana

    Hang in there, glad you are improving rather than going backwards

    Wish I could send you a cake mix,
    I figure you would have it stirred up (stir crazy) in a hurry : )

    Keep the faith and the SPark and recover well

    Glad you have something to look forward to like your luncheon with the Indy Sparkers. Always good to be able to get out of the house for a few hours.

    I hope the incision will heal before too long. Sounds like a slow process but you've got a good doc who is keeping an eye on what's going on. Keeping you in my prayers that this will all be behind you (No pun intended) soon.

    Hugs
