He's not the only one who's asked, so here's the latest.Sorry about the IV stuff.How’s the ‘bone? Started therapy yet?
The bone seems to be doing pretty well. I've been off the pain meds for over a week, and the X-Rays looked good yesterday. Doctor says another 4 weeks is likely, but thinks that the bone graft is taking.
I got a therapy to do, although it's baby steps. It does get me out of the sling and feels pretty good - my muscles were feeling like they were atrophying, and actually the only pain I've had has been muscle twinges. I'm working on restraining my enthusiasm, but feeling frustrated is a sign that I'm bettter.
The PICC in my chest is a pain in the tail end. I tried to talk the doc into removing it early but she wasn't having a any of that. The cultures have eliminated the really nasty stuff like Mersa, but it's still daily doctor visits. Getting a lot of reading done thought!
UPDATE 28 February 2015 10:22: There's quite a bit of fatigue still, which is making my mental processes dull. You can tell this from the blog post output.
