M, thanks for that poem, it means more than you know, because it took your time and in today's world, time is a precious commodity.  Trust me, I am watching out.  I'm sick to death of not being able to go out when I want/need to.  Having to depend on others for transport sucks.  I mean, I am extremely fortunate that I have the housemate, and family I do. 


You're welcome but I must admit I was a bit stressed and cranky yesterday so I popped off that poem in 10 minutes during my second cocktail with a crappy migraine.  :-[  lol.

Jeff, promising her spankings was a bad move.  You need the spanking and Betty needs to be tied down. Hmm...this plan may not work either.

Betty, I really would have loved to see you on that cart shopping with one of those extended grab devices. I would bet you could become a world class expert in no time.

I would love to have a cocktail.  Unfortunately, my housemate believes I have an issue with alcohol because of having issues with drugs in the past.  So I can't drink, though I do have a1/2 of a pint of Captain downstairs under my bed that I may crack into if my housemate goes to her meeting tonight (12step meeting)

M, it only took you 10 minutes to write that?  Wow, you're good. And I understand you want to tie me down and watch you give Jeff a spanking?

So my car won't start.  I should have been going out every couple days and starting it.  I was going to go through the drive through at my credit union. Oh well, not today lol.

I was thinking about how much faster my bones would heal if I would quit smoking.  So quitting has now become an idea.  Jeff, are you still not puffing?

Michael, lol.  I don't believe my housemate looks at my computer, or the sites I post on.  And I did have that cocktail; in fact, I had two.  I made the last one a bit strong, I believe, because I slept straight through the night and didn't wake up when anyone got home, or when my housemate put her grandson on the pull out couch that's right outside my room lol.

M, happy holidays to you as well.  You are one of the most sweetest persons I know, and you truly deserve the best. 

I haven't done anything strange today.  My housemate's daughter's family came over for dinner, so I visited with them and wrote end of year grant stuff.  Yuck.  Tomorrow I see the orthopedist, late in the afternoon.  I believe I'm going to request an MRI on my whole leg to find out why there are these humps and my leg is now deformed.  Stay tuned....

Went to the appointment yesterday and was told something I was totally not ready for.  The doctor is now recommending that I get a rod in my leg.  My bone is healing curved.  I believe I am going to get a second opinion.  This just gets worse and worse, I wish it was all over (leg issues). 

I told a friend that maybe I should have everything below my waist should be cut off and I could get prostheses.  Then I could be another blade runner lol.

I am supposed to go back in two weeks. But, if I can get an appointment with another orthopedist, the appointment may not happen then.  I just want to be able to move around without severe pain. 

So, that's what's going on now.  I'm not too upset, just thoughtful.  Good vibes, feelings, prayers, whatever, are much appreciated!

Good vibes, prayer and a little whatever is heading your way . A second opinion is good, I would be really surprised if it varied too much from what you have heard already since you know for sure its not healing correctly . I wish I could make it all better but we can at least have a good laugh now and then on the phone and forget what ails us if just for a minute .

Sorry to hear the latest news Betty. Ugh! I agree with Jeff on this but it never hurts to get another opinion.

On the plus side, I doubt you will have to worry about a rod breaking. You will be well on your way to becoming the $6 million dollar woman.

Sending you best thoughts that I can muster.  :-*

Thanks guys. Yeah, the other doctor will probably say the same thing.  I just wish my doctor had been more proactive in all this.  But, whatever.  I'm just tired of being in pain.  But, the more stuff I go through, the less shocked and taken aback at what I hear lol. At least when it involves my joints
Every move I make it's like I pop and crack all over, even when I breathe I have pops in my ribs.  It's crazy. 

I'm not going to stress about this the next couple days, or try not to for the whole weekend.  I was asked to be a speaker at a New Year's Eve Narcotics Anonymous dance.  I was asked to talk about what pills can do to a person, as a lot of addicts are running to doctors seeking (what else) Xanax and Vicodin.  So I may do that.  Give back and all that.  Love you guys!

Betty,

I think getting a second opinion is a very smart idea at this point.  Getting a rod inserted in your leg may be the right answer, but it can really improve your confidence and outlook to hear it from a second physician.  Your current physician should take no offense at this.  I'm sending you lots of healing thoughts and prayers.  In the meantime, I hope you have a Merry Christmas!

Love and Hugs,

Henry

Thanks guys.  I don't know about strength, it's just like you said Greg, what other choice do we have?  I don't like to have a miserable attitude and make everyone around me miserable.  Don't be mistaken, I do have bitch sessions with my housemate.  But I don't like to be constant doom and gloom. 

Today I have the house to myself.  The housemate's son is gone to his girlfriend's and won't be back until tomorrow night, and my housemate is working.  I've changed my sheets, dusted my room, and am doing some laundry.  Starting tomorrow, other than Friday, there are a few holiday gatherings, so I wanted to be done with the cleaning stuff prior to that. 

I sincerely hope everyone has an excellent holiday.  Can you all believe that next week it will be a new year?  I'm hoping the upcoming year will be a better one.  This one sucked, starting with the broken hip.  So, let's all keep our fingers crossed for a super year for all of us!

Michael, so good to hear from you.  I'm sorry you hurt your knees and ankle. I believe I have another break on the outside of the same leg my other breaks are on. 

I go see my ortho doctor today and will be discussing the rod placement.  I hope it will be the right fit.   Keeping fingers crossed.

Good luck with the Dr visit Betty, I walked for 20mins last night okish though can feel the metal joining rod in right foot with each step. No longer painful but much prefer not feeling it so  distinctly .

I will check this site often to hear your news and decision ,I am not clear if this is the second opinion Dr visit ?
Are you driving? I know how you hate to be deprived off the freedom it gives you , though some off your driving descriptions scare me blue.
For the first time in years I am a wanting a Car , will have to take some catch up lessons as I have not driven in 10 years at least.

Hi Michael, no, I can't drive yet unfortunately.  My car won't even start now because of my failure to keep starting it when it started to get frigid.  Even if it did start, I still couldn't drive it.  I can't walk without the walker and I would have to put that in the back seat. My bones in my leg are healing curved, and I think the smaller bone (fibula) may be broken again.  It feels like I have arrows going into my leg every step, every time I lift up my leg, or set it down.

This appointment isn't the second opinion.  I believe my doctor is right about me needing the rod.  I will be talking to him about the surgery and talking to the nurse practitioner about starting a med for the osteoporosis crap.

I will definitely keep this updated.  I appreciate everyone's concern.

Hi everyone.  I can't believe it's been a week since the rod was put in my leg.  I'm in a physical rehab at the moment, but don't plan on being here past Friday.  This Friday.  I don't think they agree with that but I really don't care lol. Wouldn't be the first time I left a facility AMA. 

Been doing therapy every day. Well, except last Friday.  My blood pressure dropped pretty low, I'm talking 65/35.  Yes, that's correct. It was the result of a medication error-I was given too large a dose of my heart med.  Other than that, therapy every day.  Which is fine.

If I knew how to post pics here, I would share pics of my incisions.  They look really good and have stopped draining.  Next Monday, those are coming out.  I want to thank everyone for continued support.  It means a lot.

I left AMA when I had the plates and screws were installed and the ligament repaired in my lower leg.  They wanted me to stay several days after the surgery and I refused, staying 1 day only.  I saw no need when I could enjoy my recovery in my own bed.

I certainly hope this gets you some mobility.

Glad to read you are the other side off the operation Betty. Why do they wish you to stay on longer than you wish ? Will home be set up for your return ? Does the rehab includ an assessment off your home ? Sorry for being a worry wart , but your leg must heal and not have more set backs . Have you seen the Doc who did the op, what's there view. OK you can stand down from the Dock now and recieive a great big hug.

I have been weight bearing as tolerated since the day of the surgery.  Michael, this place does offer home assessments, but I passed on it.  I use a walker here, which is what I had been using at home, so no difference there.

Today in therapy I did the staircase, up and down.  I'm pretty instinctual of what I can and cannot handle physical wise.  And I pay attention to my instincts.  I've had too many negative consequences of not paying attention, and there's no way I want to continue that.

I believe physical therapy has taken me seriously regarding my wanting to go home Friday.  There's not much they can do about it really.  It is a very pleasant facility, I just hate not being home.  I'm sure everyone can understand that.

As far as what the surgeon thinks, he's on vacation.  But he is not the one who had me come here. He was going to send me home the day after surgery but I insisted on getting very short term physical rehab. Just to get stronger and to make sure nothing else happens. 

Thanks again guys.  I will keep all updated.

Got my stitches out today, didn't hurt a bit.  I only had like 15. The nurse practitioner said the fibula is just starting to heal a little (had to re-break during surgery).  The rod looks good, I don't have any gut-wrenching pain, so I only take like 1 pain pill a day. The rest of the time I take Ibuprofen or Tylenol. 

I go back to see the doctor in 3 weeks.  I was told today another 6-8 weeks before possibly going back to work.  I attempted calling HR at my "manual" job, but no answer. I left a message, and the doctor office is supposed to send paperwork.  Hopefully they will hold my job, dunno.  If not, I guess I can apply again. 

That's it for now.  Will update more if/when anything happens.

Thanks guys.  In my last post, I should have said "staples," not "stitches."  Anyway....I called the manual job and they told me they cannot hold my job past this Friday.  The lady did say I would be eligible for re-hire in the future, and she would put my name on their paperwork for this.  Of course that doesn't mean I would get the same house again, I could get one where there is a lot of heavy lifting etc.   That would not fly. 

I did drive today, just went through a drive-thru to get a smoothie.  I put the walker right outside my car door, so when I got home I could use it again.  I can't walk without the walker yet.

The physical therapist did come over this afternoon.  She had me walk with my cane for just a couple times around the kitchen.  I still cannot use the cane exclusively, but will be happy when I can.  I have exercises I'm doing daily, plus I started riding my recumbent bike for 20 minutes a day.  Hopefully this will push me towards quitting smoking again, though that's not high on my list.

Greg, yes, luckily this time of year is a good one to have to be in and not so active.  Actually the worst snowfall we've had this winter has been over Thanksgiving.  I mean it has snowed, but nothing huge.  Only a couple inches here and there.  The next couple of days they're calling for highs in the upper 30's.  But, winter is supposed to hit again next week, with high's in the 20's and accumulating snow.  Well, it's only coming up on February and we've had snow late into April/early May before. Not that I want that to happen again lol.

I do appreciate the support from everyone, it really does help spirit wise. I feel a bit isolated other than seeing my roommate, her son and a few friends of mine and theirs who have been by.  Other than the weekend, when my roommate has been good enough to take me out.  One day at a time comes in handy right now....

Hey Betty,

Glad you are on the mend. Be careful if you have to go out in this iffy weather.

HUGS,

So I found out a couple days ago that I now have a fractured right foot, the same side as all the recent fractures.  It's like I break something every coup weeks.  And I broke my foot the same way everything else happened to break-walking. 

Today I see the ortho and his nurse practitioner for a post-surgery followed up and to be started on the Forteo.  That's a daily injection which won't be much of a bother since I inject insulin every day.  It's supposed to build bone mass. Well, we'll see. Wish me luck.

Oh, by the way, I shoveled out the driveway yesterday to clear the snow we got night before last.

Betty, Betty, Betty...

I really don't know what to say anymore. ::) What's next? The Boston Marathon? Sky diving? Tap dancing?

I agree with "bossy" Jeff. (another thread) lol.

Hunker down and get some healing going on SOON! Hope it is not causing too much pain in the meantime. :-*

Thanks Michael, I also hope the treatment works.  So far no debilitating side effects so I'm happy about that.  Good to see you!
