So, today was the day.
Dr. Hoffinger said that Amy would start to feel better when one of two things happened:
A) Her graft heals to the point that the bone hardens at the bottom, ending/lessening her pain.
B) Her graft breaks, releasing the pressure on her leg and ending/lessening her pain.
She’s been out of a wheelchair for almost a month now, with little to no pain- just like he said she would. Every day I was thankful she had no pain. Every day I was afraid that her graft had broken, and her surgery had failed.
Today, was x-ray day. Today, we found the answer.
Looks pretty not broken to me!!! 🙂 I’m excited to hear what Dr. Hoffinger has to say. But even in the meantime, here’s a couple more exciting comparisons. 🙂
December 18, 2018 – January 21, 2019:
This first image shows a comparison from last month to this month. If you look closely where the new growth is between the bones, you can see a very clear dark line in December where there is no bone. But today? That line is GONE! Totally filled in! I’m not a doctor, but I strongly suspect that we have union!
Before Bone Stimulation – After 5 Months of Bone Stimulation:
Well, if there was any doubt in my mind about whether bone stimulation works, it is completely gone now. After 6 months of attempting to unite those bones on her own, and not much healing happening, look what five months of bone stimulation has done? Simply amazing!
I absolutely cannot recommend this any more strongly. 20 minutes of treatment a day, with no pain, and no side effects. Simply astounding. Seriously, talk to your doctor about it TODAY.
Tomorrow, I hope I’ll be able to hear from Dr. Hoffinger. He knows best, and I hope he will confirm that we in fact do have union!!!
