    Another reconstructive foot surgery ...

    Well I'm on my 5th day of recovery. Surgery went great with no hiccups. I'm still dealing with quite a lot of pain including phantom pain again but the meds are working. I saw the new x-ray of my foot in the recovery room. The big toe has a plate and six screws. My right foot officially has more...

    Another reconstructive foot surgery ...

    Hi CGA, Sorry for the lack of updates (again). I do have some news to share. I was approved for leg braces in January. But these aren't the higher cost ExoSym leg braces. My worker's comp approved the AFO unloaders that cost about 2/3 less than the ExoSym. This was the developer I talked...

    Another reconstructive foot surgery ...

    Hi everyone, Well it’s been about 6 months since my last update. This will be a lengthy read so I apologize in advance. As the year closes, I’ve spent much time reflecting on the year. The year of 2017 was the first time since 2012 where I didn’t have an operation to one or both of my feet. I...

    I can tell you speak from experience Ursen. That's probably what's been the most shocking are the doubters, including people you know. I'd never consciously say something so hurtful to another person, especially those with health issues. Most of the time, I never say a word. But it does show...

    Another reconstructive foot surgery ...

    Thanks. Yeah, I've been busy not just dealing with my feet. There's been other issues I choose not to discuss. But I also forgot about my elbow. It still hasn't healed 100%. Even last month I got another cortisone shot in it because it continues to have pain & issues. It now makes this dull...

    Another reconstructive foot surgery ...

    Hi CGA. It's been a little over 2 months and I have a few minor updates. First and most important is I have postponed the amputation for my right foot. After nearly 1 year of constant pain, my right foot began showing signs of improvement in May. Right now, the pain is almost equal to my...

    I've had problems with the new messaging system as well. I've typed something out only to have to have it disappear. What I've begun doing is either type it in a word processing program then copy/paste here or I'll copy the text before I reply just in case it disappears. I have a small update...

    Another reconstructive foot surgery ...

    Hi CGA, It's been awhile since I've written an update. While I did have a few updates to share the past couple months, I’ve been waiting on a new diagnosis (CRPS) so I could compile it into one post. This may be a long update. It’s now been about 11 months since last April’s reconstruction to...

    Another reconstructive foot surgery ...

    Hi everyone, Figure I should provide a new update before the beginning of the new year. I have a lot of important information to share regarding my right foot. But first here’s a small update regarding my elbow. It’s been about six weeks since the operation. I find that keeping a compression...

    Another reconstructive foot surgery ...

    Hi everyone, A huge thanks to everyone for the prayers. I hope this doesn't sound like a broken record, but I am truly appreciative for them. It's now been two weeks that I had the elbow operation. Yesterday the stitches were finally removed. But before I get into the next part, I figure I'd...

    Another reconstructive foot surgery ...

    Hi everyone, Well it’s been a little over two months since my last update. I have a lot of news to share today. First thing is, my foot started showing signs of improvement again in September. The reason my foot didn’t show signs of improvement in August was due to the heat and humidity. As the...

    Another reconstructive foot surgery ...

    Sorry for the late reply Gerbil. I can ride a recumbent bike now using Teva sandals. I can ride for about 30 minutes in a low resistance setting. It's the only part of physical therapy where I've shown improvement. In the few times I've flown, the metal implants sometimes shows up on scanners...

    Another reconstructive foot surgery ...

    Hi everyone. Well it's been a little over 2 months since my last update. Unfortunately I don't have much good news to share. My right foot has not shown signs of improvement for about a month now. It's still swollen and hurts a lot. I can stand & walk unassisted in a walking boot for only a...

    Another reconstructive foot surgery ...

    Hi everyone, It's been nearly 2 months now since the April 27 operation to my right foot. As expected I begin physical therapy at a sports clinic tomorrow. I'm looking forward to it. On June 10, I began some weightbearing with 45 lbs of my body weight in walking boot and crutches. There's a...

    So what's everyone playing these days?

    I stopped playing the Division for now due to bugs and boredom. At first it helped keep my mind off the pain from my foot surgery in April. No longer the case. So the only game I'm playing right now is Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes on my tablet. Nothing else interests me and it's the most...
