Adam_G : OS Visit - "Looks Perfect"
Diary entry posted Mon 5:52pm 18 June 2007

So I went to see my OS today for the first time in 3 weeks. Iím now 5 weeks post op. My cast was cut off by the cantankerous old ortho tech Jim. This is the 10th cast Iíve been in since the whole ordeal began 7.5 weeks ago, so weíre old buddies now. X-Rays were taken and I was first on the docket when my OS got out of his morning surgery.

Drum rollÖÖThe Doc says things look perfect. Soft callus formation happening nicely. They cut me out of the fiberglass cast and Iím now in an aircast (Darth boot), and start ROM tomorrow with a PT. Next Monday I go from NWB to FWBAT (in boot only). In 5 weeks I go back to the OS at which time, if things look good, my syndo screws come out the following week.

After having such a tough time with fracture blisters early on in the process itís so nice to have things going well. I know PT is going to hurt, probably a lot, but itís all for the sake of recovery. I asked the Dr for the best PT in town and he suggested someone over on Mercer Island (Seattle) so thatís where Iíll be going 3x a week for the next little while.
