Well, I had my two week post-surgical checkup today. Kind of a mixed bag. The good news is that everything appears to be healing OK. I can go back to work 1/2 days next week, still can’t drive though. But that’s OK. I was hoping he would switch me to a soft brace, but he wants to be more careful because of the severity of my injury and so I’m wearing the hard brace until my next appointment at the end of September. After that he’ll reevaluate and decide if I can go to a soft brace for the next 6 weeks. It will all depend on the x-rays.
The even better news is that he said it would be OK if I do a little bit of hand tool work. Nothing heavy duty though – no planning or heavy sawing – and limit my time doing it.
Now I’m trying to think of little projects I can do that don’t involve planning and no heavy sawing.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
