Thanks for the responses ! dbrow and fall guy, your right I am expecting to much to soon.
(although I did cut the grass with the brace this morning)... I'll wait until
the OS assigns PT before I do more. Right now I just wanna drive
Thanks for the encouragement everyone.This is frustrating and its good to have others who know what you are goung thru.
Wannasail, my "painkiller" of choice was Cruzan and diet coke or rum runners on Tortola.
Did you go to a doctor on St.Thomas? I chose not to.... no cane or crutches, just ice and ibupoferen for a week
until we returned to the US. The airport in Puerto Rico was tough, a lot of walking and no carts
(tried an up escalator and barely escaped).
Luckily I had little pain just bruising and swelling.
I arrived back in Chicago 7/9, saw the OS 7/10 and had surgery 7/14.
Wanasail how did you manage in the Caribbean?
I see the OS Monday and hope for the smaller, hinged brace all of you describe.
