I went in to the doc yesterday & he said that the pins are not AS embedded as before but certainly still intact. His opinion of the what I thought felt like bone (the bump) is that it is swelling and only "a bit" of the bone..he said it has shifted "minimally" but that it is normal..I am going to wait out his treatment plan but I AM NOT HAPPY WITH IT & I am not usually a negative or complaining person
. My x-rays showed that the bone has shifted, not being a doc myself, I have to take his word that it is minimal. As for the pain he told me to take Tylenol & put me on steroids for the inflammation..
Grrrrr @ him! I spent Christmas miserable with pain & it isn't much better now..I have also taken myself out of work until I can bear some weight without pain, although he refused to write me out of work at this point...he said if I was able to go back to work @ 1 wk. post-op I would be fine to continue on....
I am very frustrated w/ how this whole process is going & wouldn't do it again unless they offered to PAY ME!....Thanks & prayers, Shellie
