Amanda_L : 16.5 weeks OS appt
Diary entry posted Tue 1:45pm 5 May 2009

I had xrays today for the first time in 5 weeks and was hoping for a miracle!! The good news is that there IS bone healing happening. The bad news doubles the good though. I am still on 50% weight bearing status and remain there for another 4 weeks. My foot turns an extreme shade of blue/black when below my heart, so I am now referred to a vascular surgeon to see if any veins are pinched/blocked. If so, then I may need a stint in my leg. Which means another surgery. I got fitted for an AFO for inside my air cast/shoes to help with stability. I finally got a referral for PT. Still can't drive, can't walk, can't work. I am going crazy. I just really want this shit to be done with once and for all. I can swim now, which is great... but I have no way to GET to the pool.
PT will be a challenge since I cannot drive and my husband works long hours in the summer.
Oy......
