Monday will mark 550 days since being hit by a truck. 2 surgeries, 2 sets of MRI's 9 sets of x-rays, 7 emergency room visits, 5 OS doctors, 2 IME's, 3 case workers, 3 nights in the hospital, 244 physical therapy appointments, 390 days of work missed and 25 days of work hardening therapy. Monday should be the beginning of the end. Tuesday I get tested for work ability, the following Tuesday my doctor checks the test results the next day an IME checks them and hopefully both clear me to go back to work. You can't imagine what 17 months of being off work you actually miss it!! I regained most of my strength and flexibility but kneeling never came around. I keep telling my self that it will come back just needs more time. All in all I would say that the surgery was worth it daily pain is gone and I can do most things as long as I don't kneel or run.
