After exactly 3 weeks in the hospital/rehab facility, I'm finally back home. I came home yesterday afternoon, and I slept in my bed last night. I'll tell you, sleeping in my own bed makes a world of difference. I actually slept the entire night; I only woke up once to go to the bathroom. the hospital rehab beds we're so uncomfortable, I was lucky if I got 2 hours of sleep a night, and I always woke up with a terrible leg cramp; No leg cramp or back pain sleeping in my own bed. 👍 I saw my surgeon yesterday, everything looks good in the x-rays, and I have 8 more weeks that I cannot put any more weight on my left leg then toe touch only. I am using a walker; no longer need a wheelchair at all.

Since coming home, my pain has noticeably decreased. I'm using one oxycodone every 6 hours as needed, along with 1000mg extra strength Tylenol every 8 hours, and 200mg Ibprofen every 6 hours. I am slowly working my way off the oxycodone.

Since I've been trapped indoors for the last 3 weeks, my sister and Mom asked if I'd be interested in going to a movie at the theater. We saw Despicable Me 3, and it was great! It's also a great to be able to get out of the house using my Walker, and just enjoy normal life. ☺

Have you considered using your convalescence to watch Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood?

Here is an X-Ray of my newly installed custom plate and screws (middle of pic). Upper right are 4 screws fixing the fracture there.
