Follow-up #1

Lynne and I both had follow-up doctor visits this week. We are both making progress but also have a way to go.

Lynne's foot has improved some. The doctor would have liked to see more growth of soft tissue and calcification to her break, but it had not gotten any worse. She is relegated to at least another month in her boot. She is also on some supplements to aid in bone growth and we are looking into a device that helps stimulate bone growth.

My follow-up also went well. We got x-rays, so now know what was done. 1 plate and 12 screws--I'm not sure how there can be that much room in my wrist, but the x-rays don't lie. I start some "range of motion" physical therapy next week, and will get another checkup in a month. I'm told that healing will take 3+ months.
