Thought I would give you all an update. I start PT this week. The Docs are all amazed at how well I'm doing. Newest X-rays show lots of new bone growth. At this time the only pain I have is from the lack of muscle in that arm, and of course where they cut through the muscle to get at the bone. It's amazing how much muscle mass I've lost in that arm. My bicep is now nothing more than jelly.
Pain med withdrawals were not fun! 3 days of cold sweats and eiritability. It is nice however, to be able to poop without a massive doses of laxative.
The best news is, they are now saying that if it continues like it is, more surgeries may not be necessary.
I'm back at riding my bike, all be it very carefully. My plans for a trike are not squashed, but life has a way of f*cking things up. I lost the house I was renting (landlord sold it) so I'm having to move. This of course cost $ that I am in short supply of. So for now, I'm going to have to just be really really careful on the 2 wheeler.
