2 month post-FVFG follow-up

I saw my surgeon in NYC on Thursday, he said things are going well and that in 4-6 weeks we might be able to see some changes in an MRI.

He had a couple things to say which were tough to hear. The first was that my leg most likely will never have the same range of motion that it had before, because the structural damage to the head of the hip is already done and won’t heal. The second was that the healing process could take up to 2 years to complete. I never thought that this whole process would take so long.

    Two years is a long time! Did he say if you were allowed to rest your foot on the ground?

    Unfortunately he kept me on the non-weight bearing status. I am REALLY looking forward to getting to use my right leg again, no matter how limited.
