It is 2 days post wire removal. I will post updates on a new thread under the "Bone Breaks around the knee" under "Wire Removal". This way those that have similar experiences to this stage of this process have an easier way of finding this info. Not a lot to report yet. There is pretty severe stinging pain, which I assume is all just incision pain, and I am not taking any drugs at this point. I am icing it at least 3-4 times per day through pretty thick dressings, taking Bromelain for anti-inflammatory, Vit C to detox body and multi vitamins and Biosil to aid bone regeneration, just hoping it creates some extra calcium/bone generation in the holes left in the patella where the wire was removed.
I walked a bit on it yesterday, my son had a hockey game i went to, went to the mall to get vitamins, and then out to a fund raiser at a pub. I did an upper body workout and am now committed to doing 3 upper body workouts per day until I can focus some of that time back to lower body workout. Resting and helping area heal is important, but so is maintaining good circulation and keeping your body healthy.
I am not allowed to remove the dressings for 3 more days and will know a bit more what swelling looks like at this time.
The area gets stiff and sore when sitting in one position for any length of time. Hurts to switch positions so wakes me up through the night, but I am able to get back to sleep upon getting settled again.
