Excellent news! Today Ivan confirmed that the ‘cage’ is coming off on Tuesday 28 February. Yay.
Feeling genuinely excited.. and maybe a little apprehensive.
You see while it is agreed the time has come to get the frame off, the risk of any further bend in my bone is still a concern. (with good reason because deadset a bendy shin ain’t so great). As a result on Tuesday while I am indeed getting the metal removed from the exterior of my leg I will also get a little bit of metal inserted.
Ivan hit me with this small curve ball today. It will result in the fours screws in my tibia being removed and a steel rod being inserted into my tibia. I will be in hospital until Friday 3/3 – hoping I’m out of there before Adele arrives (don’t want them getting us confused). H e l l o
So yeh. I am ok with this… it makes sense. Maybe a little bummed that I have another significant operation and hospital stay at this stage of the game, but it is most definitely not the end of the world.
So here’s to the next step.
