Boston Doctor update

Had x-rays done this morning, met with the PA and then the surgeon. Happy Happy News! The rods, and screws are in place and the bone has fused around them. Surgeon is releasing my care back to my home town orthopedic group, but is open to seeing me if problems come up. No more medical trips to Boston.

Surgeon feels the balance issues are from the restricted movement and my body-brain adjusting to new movement patterns.


Weather was nasty when we finished up at the medical center so we stayed another night.

I am so happy for you. You will slowly get back into a routine and your brain will adjust to your movements and I bet your balance returns. It is such good news. I hope you are celebrating!

Is it snowing? Are you staying another night?

Yippee! Hope you are staying the night in Boston...it is still snowing here.

Maybe look for one of those Matter off Balance classes...or tai chi...to help you get your balance back. We do a lot of balance exercises in aquafit and yoga, too.

Maybe this summer we can get the NH PT folks together for a day...

Congratulations on your very good news. Will you be doing some PT to help with balance? (Forgive me if you already mentions this.)

So glad you had this wonderful news! It's been a long road.

Sounds like it was a good idea to stay the second night.
