Well today I'm getting my blood tested again. the last time the white platele count was up. On the out side of my body I can't have any thing other then gold on my skin or i get a rash. I think my body is rejection the hardware.

i hope they can tell me the count right away or right after they get it back.

lately i can't hardly move in the moring cuz i hurt so bad. Before i could get up and go to the bathroom.

The doctors nurse said she thinks its a hematoma but i have been heating it like they said for weeks with no change.

the only way i feel no pain is to take 2 pain pills. they took me off oxy and on to hydrocodone. those dont really help so in the morning i take my oxy then in 4 hours take the others.

I pray that I'm not rejecting the hardware but everyone i have talked to except on here thinks due to the outter body rejection i maybe be rejecting it on the inside too.

But if I am that I guess is out of my hands.




  • You are so early out from surgery. At this stage of the game I was taking the maximum amount of pain medications I could take. You need to give it more than 1 month. It's a marathon, not a sprint.

  • i will not know yet that my body willnt reject it tell it gets done with the swelling and is getting to a more normal life then if it is going to do anything it will reject the hardware.

    the tests were normal. I do more tests March tord the end of the month.

    They are going to test for rejection every month sence it is only a blood test
