|: : i went to the ortho today. no healing, 4 months. because there wasnt enough bone in my arm to stimulate healing. lost a lot of bone since fragments died from waiting to get it fixed. so surgery nov. 13th. they will take bone from my hip and put in my arm, then implant a bone stimulator and hopefully in 3-4 months it will heal. then i will get the stimulator surgically removed. i will be in the hospital after surgery. if this doesnt work, options are bad. :-( but it will heal this time right? its my own bone. also my vit. D is on the low side so mega supplementing that now to get in the range healthiest for bones. i take it but some people need a lot more. if you havent, get it tested so noone here has weak bones later.
: : pray for me please!!! i need it......
: : i took a pic of my forearm but it is looking pretty ugly, ew.... no more muscle really.
: Well, now you're like the NYC supermodels!
hahaha! except, where are the boobs? ;-P
: Hang in there, we're all rooting for you. You win for toughness, tolerance and surely, patience.
patience, patience? lol, i still dont understand that word. ask Bernhard. i think he and others might say i'm struggling lol. considering, i'm proud i'm trying hard. i wish i got a metal after surgery. after all, everyone that finishes a marathon does. i think this is harder then a marathon!
You'll also succeed in returning from the most serious of injuries. Stay up and know that positive, healing witchy-poo vibes are all headed your way.
i think so. its my own bone. all i need to heal is for bone to be near other bone. thats the reason why it didnt heal. i never thought i would be crippled for a full YEAR, ouch! i hope it works. if not i hope the prothetics work for bike riding too. i know you can play basketball w/ them but i'm too tiny to be of use 1 to 1 w/ the big dudes. honestly i'm terrified, not of surgery, of the waiting and fearing it wont work.
thanks irene, ur a sweetie! can i borrow a few parts for an hour lol? ;-D sometimes i have to cheat and roll a touch in the kitchen, opps lol.
