Diary entry posted Fri 2:45pm 27 February 2009

1-22-09 was my first "post op" appointment. I was so excited to see HEALING! No such luck. They cut off my cast with the cast saw, which had me sweating I was so nervous. It really doesnt hurt though! Its a lot of pressure at times, but it never hurt. My leg was gross looking. Hairy, purple, stitches and goo everywhere. They pulled out the 53 stitches, which again, I was waiting for pain to come with it. It really didnt hurt either! It felt like pulling hair through a cut, I guess thats the best way to explain it. Some of them were a little painful (think less than a papercut) because skin had grown over. Then I went for xrays and got recasted. The recasting was really easy, not painful at all and quick. The new cast felt GREAT because it wasnt loose like the last one. Once they get loose, it hurts to move, sleep, etc. Back in 2 weeks for more xrays and a new cast. I was hoping to healing by then!
