myositis ossificans...I have it in a jar!
« on: November 04, 2005, 01:02:38 AM »
During my TKR my OS removed a coin dollar sized piece of bone that was growing in my Quad muscle. Its some kind of bone growing in the muscle from cells leaking out of my traumatized joint. I had him save it (along with all the other bone fragments from the TKR) and I have it in a jar. Its really kool and its my keepsake! I struggle every minute and am looking for a good OS in the Vegas area. The water helps with my pain but its a never ending battle. Any one else ever have this weird bone growth?? I had a huge osteophyte removed before the TKR which I think was a mistake. I should have gone for the TKR sooner. 12 ops and not looking forward to another...
Still gimping around, trying to be positive.
