ORTHOPEDIC UPDATE - NOVEMBER 27, 2012
Tuesday, November 27, 2012
Went and saw the dr today as a follow-up on my broken foot. They took an x-ray to see how the foot/toes were healing. The second metatarsal has a Freidberg's Afracture which means the joint is dying and I will be needing another surgery to do an implant in place of the bad joint. I am to return in one month for another x-ray to see how the joint of the next toe is doing which also looked like it was dying also but no as quickly. I told him I'd be waiting on the surgery until both toe joints were done doing what they were doing! I'm not in a hurry to be wheelchair bound for another 6 weeks right away.
As it is, I'm still scheduled for December 20, 2012 for my shoulder surgery to repair the damaged tears and moderate amount of arthritis. Can't wait for that surgery to be over with!! My arm is not only aching from the tears but the weather changes that we are having is also raising havoc on the arthritis in my shoulder as well. It's like having a terrible toothache or earache and nother makes it go away. I feel this all the way down to my elbow.
Will keep you updated if I am lucky enough to get a call telling me of a cancellation for an earlier surgery.
