Saw the Surgeon Today no Good news ,
Saw the surgeon today and it was not good news but it was'nt bad either.. From what he can see on the xray is that the screws and rods are staying where they belong but the bone is not healing as its should He said he wanted to wait another two months and check it again and then if it is not any further along than it is now he wants to do a CAT scan to see what is going on.
He said that he did not want to rush into another surgery since I have already had three of them and that we are now 5 months out from the revision surgery.
He thought that my nerve in my foot and the burning of it was the nerve trying to heal.. He increased my Gabapentin to 3000 miligrams. No more PT but I am to do all the exercises at home and use the TENS machine as I need it.
My memory loss is due to the Gabapentin and for now there is nothing we can do about it. Not being able to focus on things is also due to the Gabapentin. you know while this drug does help ease the nerve pain and makes it less intense than it is without it IT SUCKS not being able to remember and focus on things..
I am just so frustrated with this whole process. .
