cast is changed to a new shorter one

well, been to personal dr. and was at the orthopedic one today as well.  he pronounces the cellilitis as gone.  hm.  leg still is filled some but not like it was, with lotsa blood from injury.  i am a lot less swollen there but still, more to go.

taking the long over the elbow cast off was a long ordeal.  having the requisite xrays was very very painful. it's only 3 weeks, yes, but i am niot able to move my wrist yet,  he commanded i continually flex my fingers.

they've been so restricted that it's hard to do.

thamk you again and again for your support thru this.  Chip..bring the beanie and one for me too.

  1. I am so glad you posted Twin. I wanted to find out but didn't want to bother you with a call.

    Prayers for the complete healing of your leg and wrist.

  2. Have to ask THE BOSS where she hid the beanie. Know all about the flexing the fingers bit. I spent so much time squeezing a tennis ball I bet I could do it in my sleep.

    Oh, yes.....no matter how bad it gets DO NOT use a straightened coat hanger to get at the the itch inside that cast! I got a beaut of an infection that way.

  5. From one gimp to another, take care and take it easy. The cast will come off soon enough, and listen to Chip about the coat hanger.

  6. Sorry for all the "discomfort" to get the X rays and cast change, but it is big baby steps, and that is good!
