I went back to the surgeon on Thursday (11/17) and found out that I have another four weeks of keeping weight off my right foot. That means I still can’t do anything without crutches. I’ve easily spent an entire year on these things in the last 18 months. I’m not a huge fan.
The good news is that everything seems to be healing fine. The infection is down, I’m no longer sick with whatever ran through me after the antibiotics were changed each time and the bone is growing back around the screws in my leg faster than expected, the surgeon said. After four weeks I’ll move to one crutch and I have another appointment with the surgeon two weeks after that.
