Sorry I haven't been on much since surgery. I am beyond exhausted right now! Surgery took about 5 hours, and resulted in 2 cages, plates and 8 screws. Unfortunately they had no open beds after surgery, so I waited on a stretcher in recovery for 5 hours! I was originally supposed to be discharged today, but I developed a 101.6 fever so they're keeping me and doing blood cultures. (Tomorrow I can finally go home.) Oh and they did internal stitching followed up by 18 staples. Hope everyone is doing well! I'm exhausted just typing all this out.
