I still have a fair bit of pain and the ankle is a bit swollen and kinda started spontaneously dripping blood yesterday <egad>. It's hurting worse lately, so I saw the NP this morning. She put me back on antibiotics and will discuss having the metal "centipede" removed with my orthopedist.

Excited about getting rid of pain and limping, but not pleased to be undergoing another surgery on a swollen area and recuperation again so soon. Of course, this recupe will be much easier and shorter and not involve a cast! The bones look completely closed on today's x-rays :-D so that's good. And apparently I'm getting enough protein and exercise that my calf muscle is growing back--not as big as th right side yet, but not obviously smaller either.
