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. ☺

Pic should be fixed now.

Now you're part man, part machine.

Kinda like Alphonse in 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.

I CAN SEE DONG!

Don't worry, I'm a professional. Trained to spot dongs in every conceivable X Ray projection.

Just saw this.  Congrats and just think about the myriad metal things you will be able to smuggle through airports and into festivals by shoving them up your anus!
