Amanda_L : 12 weeks - I am so done with this!!
Diary entry posted Tue 9:54am 31 March 2009

Today was my 12 week mark. I met with the OS, hoping for great things (knowing in the back of mind not to get too excited). Its hard not to get excited for healing though. I have had a bone stimulator for 30 days now, so thought for sure I would see a lot of bone healing. I fractured it in 6 places, so there is a lot of work to be done in there. Sure enough, there was a LITTLE healing, but nothing extraordinary. I was hoping for more good news I guess. I instead have another 4 weeks in a hard cast. At least I got the all clear to put my BL on the ground for balance while standing (they call this weight bearing....again not my idea of weight bearing!!). It has been 3 months and I am so done with being on crutches and broken. I feel like it will never end. Depression set in at week 10, so this is not going to help. I try to keep busy, but its so much effort to crutch around. Its easier to just sleep!! I have another appt in 2 weeks, just a cast change out, then in 4 weeks more xrays. That will be my 16 week mark..... I pray for healing by then. I want to enjoy summer!!!!
