Amanda_L : 48.5 weeks & HWR tomorrow
Diary entry posted Sun 8:11pm 6 December 2009

It's a weird feeling to be anticipating and getting ready for HWR surgery tomorrow. My initial ORIF surgery was an ER, so there was no planning involved. So having time to think it over and wonder about x y and z, it kind of weird. I wonder how long it will take, how long I will be off of work, how well I will walk, if I will limp afterwards, if I will really go home the same day, if I will need all the adaptations I needed after the first surgery, if it will be very painful, if recovery will go well, if I will walk ok and not break anything with all of those holes in my bones... and no one can really answer any of those questions as it is different for everyone. I hope that I will lose the limp and the pain, that my ROM will increase and that my recovery will go smooth and "bump free". I hope to be off of work for a few weeks as I am nervous about falling, tripping, etc. I wonder if I can drive and when. I am nervous for the small chance that the bone could break when the screws and plates come out. I am sure it will be fine, but yet I wonder and worry some. I am surprisingly calm considering whats happening in 9 hours. I dont feel too nervous, more excited to get this done and over with and maybe have a chance to finally move forward. Its been almost a year and I am really sick of thinking about my damn leg every day. I hope that it will become a fleeting thought vs a constant one. So, we will see what happens tomorrow and hopefully many of my questions will come to a happy answer!!!
