Alison_B : UPDATE
Diary entry posted Sat 5:44pm 9 May 2009

well, it's been 25 weeks since the motorcycle accident. at 12 weeks, my leg wasnt healing so i had to get a bone graft done (feb 24th)...bone taken from my hip. and i have been using a Exogen 4000 since the graft, once a day for 20 minutes. 6 weeks after the graft my xray showed a ton of bone healing, actually my OS said i was 85% healed, but he wanted me to wait an extra 4 weeks to be sure...so 4 weeks went by fast, and my xray showed that i was 95% healed and my bone was solid and forming structure!! and i was given to go head to WBAT, so for the past 3 days i have been slowly getting around on crutches, using more weight each day, I dont feel any pain in my bones it just feels like i have a sprained ankle, and i can feel the badding coming back on the bottom of my foot, the ligaments stretching, tendons being worked, so all is good thus far, and honestly i didnt expect it to be this tough to WB, but it takes baby steps...my OS thinks i should be FWB in my darth in 2 weeks, and 2 weeks afer that i can ditch the boot....we will see how that goes...

xrays can be found....
