Hi all, I have my first milestone appointment with the surgeon tomorrow. 6 weeks since my op and time for the first x-rays to see how the fusion is coming along. If all goes well and he is happy, I should be getting a full weight bearing plaster.

Hope everyone else is doing well.

Rob

    Hi Rob,

    if its like breaks and plating once you have the full weight plaster on you will find it so much easier.

    Everything crossed for tomorrow and we are up for pocketing if needed. Really hope the xrays are good. Cris x
