As some of you are aware, I was involved in a motorcycle accident this past April, on my way to work. Some *** changed lanes on me in a tunnel and I was forced to lay the bike down. Surgery fixed the fractures, and I spent the summer on light duty, finally coming back to full duty 3 weeks ago. I developed an infection at the site of the fracture, which necessitated removal of the hardware. Surgery was Tuesday, hardware was removed, and the bone looks good, no infection, and has healed very nicely. There is an underlying staph infection, so the incision has been left open. I have a small Grand Canyon on the outside of my left ankle. Pretty neat, you can see the bone and all! A nurse comes to the house twice a day to change dressings, and once it arrives, I will be put on a Wound Vac, a small vacuum pump that will close the wound. That plus enough antibiotics to kill most anything alive. I am ambulatory but will be carrying a "purse" with the pump in it. Recovery time for this is estimated 4-6 weeks. Light Duty with the PD after October 13. Rats, and I just got back on the street!! My boss is gonna love this!
No announcement yet.
