This is an update regarding my fractured leg.
Well, it’s that time. I’m finally going to get my left knee re-constructed. Since my fall six months ago, I’ve been going through rigorous Physical Therapy in order to build up my thigh and calf muscles again. While I was in my leg cast for over three months I had developed Atrophy (where my leg muscles had weakened and wasted away). My leg looked like a thin stick. My orthopedic surgeon wouldn’t even consider performing surgery on my knee with no muscle mass in my leg.
My leg muscles are now built up enough for surgery. So Thursday morning at 8:00 AM, I will finally be under the knife for several hours.
My orthopedic surgeon will be removing my torn and stretched ligaments then replacing them with cadaver ligaments. He told me that he’s going to screw these cadaver ligaments right to the side of my two leg bones (Tibia & Femur). I can hear that drill now.
Anyways, for those who are religious, I really would appreciate your prayers. This particular surgery has a tendency to develop infections. I hope to God that this is not my case. That’s why I need your prayers.
Thank you kindly
