Recommended Posts

Well I am doing fairly well now 2 mos into remission (Love that word), I was putting lotion on my legs and felt these rock hard bumps on my r ankle. This is where they fixed my leg I broke last Feb with a plate and 7 screws. Went to the Dr and had an xray and it showed the screws were backing out. Now I have to go in and have them removed. :shock::shock::shock: Dr said it will be under a general and should only take 10 min. then I can go home after an hr or 2. Now I wonder how long before I can walk again?? Last time it was more than 6 weeks. Hopefully it won't be that long again. I will keep you updated afterwards. Love you all. Cindy

Cindy, so glad you are doing great! Sorry about your loose screws. That does sound funny. Hope Sam is right and you will only be down a few days. Don't forget to tell the dr as you are going in to have it done that you only have screws loose, don't amputate.haha
