The doctor’s appointment yesterday went good. The bandage and cast from the surgery were removed, as were the stiches. It was replaced with a more lightweight cast. Still non-weight bearing and I am still supposed to be elevating it at heart level for 90% of the time. Next appointment is 4 weeks where the cast will be removed, xrays taken, and possibly a walking cast with some weight bearing.
I have to remind myself that the progress is good….that when you are wheeling around in a knee scooter in the doctors office….that when any steps are very problematic…..to not allow frustration to set in. That this is a good thing. That this will allow me to fully live and do what I want to do without the limitations I had before. That in the end, this will all be worth it.
