The first bit of good news was that rolling onto my 'bad' side for a lateral x-ray was not as excruciating as it was two months ago, when I clung on to the edge of the bed gritting my teeth and muttering 'get on with it for **** sake' under my breath.
By the time we got through to the waiting room for the Generic Fracture Clinic the rest of the world was arriving but we only had a 20 minute wait. The surgeon on duty was the one I was originally under and who did one of the operations, so that was a good start.
The second bit of good news is that the bone is growing well, we saw the x-rays and it was very obvious on them (I will post them once I fork out to buy a copy!); I can now progress to partial weight bearing, about 30% of my body weight.... he made a polite estimate of my weight to give me the example.
So once home I got out the bathroom scales and stood on it until it read between 20-25kg, to see what it feels like. Surprisingly it didn't hurt at all, all I got was a bit of muscle twinge above my knee, so that is a relief. It feels rather odd though, having to concentrate on how much weight I put on it when I walk; it has certainly slowed me down because I was whizzing around on my crutches doing toe-touch! I supppose I will get used to it.
So that's me until 6th December when they see me again.
Onwards and Upwards! :-)
