Well, I'm feeling better today so here's some details.
I am home! Surgery was Thursday but there's no news yet- doctor took a "core sample" for biopsy and other testing. He also drilled 10 pinholes in the bone. Will hopefully get test results tomorrow at the follow-up visit.
I was originally supposed to go home Thursday night but they ended up keeping me til late Friday. Then I was in no shape to come home to a 2 story house so I went to my mother's apartment til last night.
I'm finally starting to feel normal again. Leg hurts but I'm off the heavy duty pain meds. I have to use crutches for everything- I'm not allowed to even lean or step on the leg, so mobility is very limited. So, I'm either here resting the leg on the desk, or in the recliner. I have to keep the leg encased while sitting or sleeping in a big chunk of yellow foam- DH calls it my "big block of cheese" (for West Wing fans).
Thanks for all the kind thoughts!
