Well done on losing the weight.I know there has to be some person out in the world who’s been in a situation like mine who’s had an infection & who’s overweight & has my same health challenges & who’s had the flap surgery & come thru it successfully! That’s what I need to hear about, you know? And by the way, I’ve continued losing weight here in the hospital — I’m eating, I guess just eating better than I was!
SusieShoes gave you a link to PegGar16's thread, in Post #105.
It's a really long thread, but well worth reading, if you have time. About the last 12 pages deal with the plastic surgery, if you don't have time to read the entire thread. Here's the link again:
To encourage you, this is what Peg wrote towards the end of her thread:
I can't believe it has been a year since my surgery...time is flying. The leg is doing fantastic! Better than anyone expected. I feel so blessed to have the doctors I do. I have a trainer that I see three times a week now. I am trying to get the whole body healthy now and it is going well. I took off 6 pounds and 9 inches in February!!! After being down for so long it feels great to be exercising all the muscles. I figure this will also help with further injuries, like the shoulder..LOL. My balance is 100% better I am also trying very hard to keep the other knee out of the OR. I really can't put into words how happy I am these days. If I am having an off day I just remember where I was 1,2 or 3 years ago. Now I get to dance to Sesame Street with my grandson and play with cars on the floor with him. I really want to show that there is light at the end of the tunnel and good outcomes. Sometimes it just takes a little longer.
