Heather G.,

OMG - I am speechless - you are really being tested.  Sorry that you are in an immobilizer - know that they are not fun - but it is probably for the best right now. 

Hopefully, they will get you another surgery date right away and you'll be able to forget about this nightmare soon.....

Sending good vibes your way .......................

Hugs,  ;)

Heather G,

Can't believe that you could do all that at once.   :o   That was one bad day.  Hope you start feeling better and feeling you ankle and foot.  Hope you didn't do any serious dammage to your ankle or shoulder.

Hope the OS can get the surgery scheduled ASAP!

Heather,

OMG...What a day you had!!! First of all, I'm so sorry that your surgery got cancelled on you like that and for the reasons that it was. I guess your OS just wants to go into this making sure you're body is okay to handle it. As for what happened today, I just hope that you didn't do too much damage and that the surgery gets rescheduled ASAP so that things can be fixed and you can forget all about today. I'm sending lots and lots of good vibes and healing thoughts your way. Take care of yourself!!

(((Hugs)))

Heather...i'm with the other's i am speechless! That is awful, i think it would be pretty hard not to feel down from all that!! Knee problems are enough by themselves but combined with everything else that's terrible! You were after positive vibes on here though so lets look on the bright side, at least you have seperate surgeons for each of your problems...specialists that should be able to look after your problems and deal with them in time really well :) It happened because you weren't in your knee brace so if you wear that up until your knee surgery it hopefully shouldn't happen again! You have exams coming up and whilst that isn't much fun (i'm coming up to them as well) at least your not missing out on the holidays or something...you'll be able to spend lots of time studying for them (you may not think that is such a good thing :P) ! Are you hypermobile? I haven't read many of your other posts...why was your surgery postponed??
The main thing of all is that you are young...which means that you should heal pretty quickly and hopefully find that your recoveries are quickly...
You have certainly had a bad time and definitely deserve to come on here and vent whenever you need to!! Goodluck with everything, i hope something i have said somehow helps you! Make you sure you let everyone know how your new MRI turns out and how you go getting a new date for your surgery!!
Goodluck!! Pip :)

 Oh Heather, I hope that things are starting to feel better(ish)...What a horrible thing to have happened, I didn't know that your surgery was cancelled... :-\ I thought you'd be starting the recovery process. I'm so sorry and I really hope they get you in soon and get you fixed up.

heather -

Wow.  If you could stand up, you'd have a great stand-up routine based on this 1 experience.  Maybe you should try it out - you've already got the props. :)  (Looking for a way to help you smile - even when it hurts.)

Any chance your home is wheelchair accessable?  Would that help with the shoulder thing?  Can you send the dogs to be trained as handicapped aid dogs?  That way they could fetch and carry for you, instead of just knocking you down.

And if all else fails, stick Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory in the DVD player.  That movie never fails to put a smile on my face.

Good luck with everything.  I hope they get all your joints in tip top shape soon.
