  • Mood:

you need sylables? i got a mouthful

so
i either have Heterotopic ossification(aka HO), or a deep bone infection. the doctor is definitely leaning towards the ossyfing tissue, since infection at this stage would be unlikely, unless something bacterial adhered to the metal in my arm via the bloodstream while all the healing veins were going out, but before the wound site was sealed internally.

i am hoping i got HO. since infection means eventually, they would have to re-operate to remove the hardware and infected bone.

back in the brace, off p/t, limiting motion as much as possible, and keep everything that can be crossed, crossed.

angry at the world. tired of quazi-invalidism. at least there was no hardware failure or fracture shift.
