Peg BS: Back after a hiatus... (38) RE: BS: Back after a hiatus... 28 Aug 04


Sinsull--damn, bad timting there. Oh well.

Jeri--sorry, I think I meant to say therapy! I got some advice from a Pilates instructor/personal trainer the other day who gave me a stretch band and showed me how to use it. I have been doing some stretches and crunches just so I do not tutn into jello, but so far I do not quite have the balanace and strength to do yoga etc. Had some time in a friend's pool last week and that worked wonders.
I have been using apricot kernel oil on the scar and it is looking better. I do not have a physical therapist or even a local orthopedist--must look into this. It is hard without insurance to even get an appointment. I will have insurance starting Octobver 1st though, thru my job (about time). I do have a chiropractor I see so I am thinking of calling him to see if he can refer me to someone. Then have to get my records transferred from western NY.

It is definitely too soon for me to be doing much--I still need the crutches for when I go out into the world and stairs are still a pain. Even though my cast came off after ten days, I was told 4-6 weeks until I could resume basic weight-bearing activity, another few weeks before things were normal again...and probably no jogging or aerobics for a few months. Guess I can deal with that, though I always start jogging again in the summer. Have to wait til next year.

So anyone ever opt to get the metal pins removed from their bones after surgery???How will I know if this is a good idea? I hear it is done sometimes if people find the pins bothersome...
too soon for me to tell I guess, plus that is another surgery.
I was told by a pharmacist not to take calcium supplements while healing so deposits would not build up around the pins...anyone hear of this before?
