Got A Good Report :o)) - Tuesday, September 17, 2013
Two weeks ago, I was sitting in the emergency room waiting to be admitted to the hospital for surgery on my compound fractured left wrist. Hard to believe, that less than 24 hours later I was discharged with a big old cast, prescription for pain medicine and a follow-up appointment with the surgeon 2 weeks later.
Well, today was the day for that follow-up visit and it all went great!!
First they removed the big turkey leg cast.
Still a little swollen, but NO PAIN!!
Next they removed the stitches.
Then they taped me together ;o))
That was followed up with a trip to X-ray!!
I got to see the plate and screws for the first time.
Doctor says it all looks GREAT:o))
I was given a removable brace.
Much lighter and more comfortable than the "Turkey Leg" cast!!
Now, I can shower without a plastic bag on my arm!
I get to remove the brace and start some gentle exercises several times a day!!
I am just blown away how quickly my arm is healing!!!
