Allen : Back in the cast
Diary entry posted Sat 11:42am 2 June 2001

I've now been to the doctor's office 3 times since my last entry. (I have been to the office 8 times and the hospital twice) Last time I had staples taken out. I thought this might hurt, but it wasn't that bad. I had 16 staples and only 2 or 3 stung alot when they came out- not even hurt. The rest just felt like a little sting or pinch. Definitely very bearable compared to other things associated with broken legs and surgery.

This time, I had my splint upgraded (or downgraded depending on point of view, lol) to a cast. I was hoping to just keep the splint, but my doc said I should hopefully only be in the cast for two weeks. Besides, it gives me more peace of mind. Ok, I can deal with that I guess. He said I would then move to a walking cast for a few weeks. So I am keeping my fingers crossed. My target area to be walking unaided is the middle of July. I am going to Seattle for a conference on July 17th, which will involve a lot of walking. Then, I am hopefully going to France for 3 weeks right after that. On the bright side, if I am in anything, it will hopefully just be a walking cast. So, I go back to the OS in two weeks, I will give another update then.
