Thumbs up One Month Post Op-GREAT NEWS!

Had my two week check up today and got GREAT news. My joint is already fused 100%! You can't even see where there used to be a joint. As a precaution, he is going to follow protocol and keep me in the cast until mid March just to see that everything is hard as a rock. After all I have gone through he doesn't want to take any chances. I was so happy when I got out of the office I cried. It's been a long hard time full of stress and I am finally starting to see light at the end of the tunnel! Thank you to all of you for your support!
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

~Kimberly

Congrats Kimberly, that is great and so fast. Best to take it cautiously. Looks like you had pretty much what I had done and I am now almost 20 weeks out and been walking in sneakers for over a month with a very slight limp that I am sure will go away. Swelling is almost gone. Once you are in a walking boot mid march you will start PT which I actually enjoyed. YOu will have a faster recovering than me. I was 10 weeks before the boot and you will be 6 weeks which is really fast.

Last time it took 12 weeks when I had it done before the re-break. This time he used a bone grafting putty that contained live bone cells mixed with my blood and filled the joint with that which stimulated bone growth.

Thanks everyone!
