Ann : hardware out part 1
Diary entry posted Thu 1:54pm 13 January 2005

This will be pretty bare bones as I'm on percocet and 1. keep falling asleep and 2. have lost most of my vocabulary, but feel like I want to put something down to celebrate the day.

Had the hardware taken out this morning. As far as I know it went well. Got to the hospital at 6:30, why so early I'll never know as I had to sit around for a 1/2 hour before the surgical floor opened up. Got up to surgery, was sent to a room and sat for another 1=1/2 hours before surgery. Oh well.

They gave me a spinal. It took about an hour to remove all the hardware then sent me off to recovery. I have a huge ace bandage around my ankle and when I move it it burns, but nothing like the original surgery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DH got me home and once again the couch is holding me up.

Originally the os told me weight bearing as tolerated. The hospital told me pwb with crutches for a week. So be it. The end result is the key here.
