Scared to death but I can't wait



  • I went to the Dr Yesterday, I am off at least another 4 weeks,. The Dr told the insurance company that my appointment in December 17, with notes that if I go back to work in December 18th it will be with restriction, If it is the 24th of December no restrictions Dr is currently weaning me off of my brace taking up to 2 hours off & if it starts to bother me or it is 2 hours to put the brace back on. When I asked what they used for the fustian, they used 2 rods 4 screws, the cadaver putty & filler. Both the DR & PA said everthing looks great. I said that I have good days & bad days, walk every day. Dr asked between the pains that I have now & before the surgery, I said that there wasn’t any comparison, 1000% different. PT starts on Monday November 24th.
    Ortho DR called with my day MRI results of my knee didn’t show anything conclusive, arthritis. And possible tear but he wants to make sure that the pain is coming from the knee, I will go in for an injection on Friday. It has been 7 weeks and there are times when I think that this should feel better by now.
    I am asking too much, I will continue to ice my knee & continue to take pain medications. That is a whole different subject. Most times now the Lortab 10 just doesn’t cut it.
    Thanks for the updates & support
