Knee Update…

I saw the Dr. again this past Friday… hard to believe it’s been 2 weeks already.  I had to get a couple new x-rays…

3-11 xray 1

It’s interesting that this view (from the front) almost perfectly lines up the 2 screws they put in.  In my last post I thought the second screw came in from the side because you could only see a portion of it.  But I can see now that the second screw is a partial and is used as an anchor to hold the broken off piece of bone in place.  They are both inserted at the same angle.

I still have at least 3 weeks of not using the leg but the Good News is that I will begin some PT for the rest of me this week!  Yahoo!

That just looks like pain!

Hope it works and you get to getting around better. I know it's hard to prop yourself up in front of the sewing machine, so get well!

Glad things are going well on the healing. Be patient. I know, that is much easier said than done.
