Andy_B : 1st visit as an Outpatient
Diary entry posted Wed 2:44am 11 July 2007

23rd May 2007, Attended hospital today, I can move around small distances on crutches with a small amount of weight on the broken leg. When I see the consultant he asks me if I can wall on it, well I have not tried says I, give it a go he says. Surprised I stumble a few tentative steps but its a bit painful. I am told I could fully weight bear with the surgery and IM I have had, but not to do too much until healed as the screws at the bottom of my Femur are taking all the weight and could fail! I had had an MRI the week before and it turns out I had a broken Trapazoid bone and not a Scafoid as first suspected, so some good news as these bones heal quickly with no complacation, the cast comes of and I have a flexible splint. The Consultant is very happy with my progress and I make an appointment for 13 weeks time to return for an x-ray.
