Surgery scheduled

Mark your calendars, I have scheduled my surgery for February 19th at Columbia Presbyterian. I’ll be in there for almost a week, so I expect all of my NJ/NY friends to come visit and cause a ruckus in my hospital room.

Crutch-free, hopefully for good this time

It has been 6 weeks since I had the hardware removed from my hip and I am crutch-free once again. It’s like nothing ever happened. I have been to the gym 3 times in the past 3 days, and have resumed my usual routine. Thanks to my recent appendectomy my pullups are limited, but other than that things feel great. I was actually sore, I love it.

I have my follow-up appointment with Dr. C next Tuesday. I’ll get more x-rays and find out how long it will be before I can start running again. Hopefully soon.

14 month update

Good news, after a little begging I got the green light from the doctors today at Boston Medical Center to get my screws out. The surgery is scheduled for the morning of May 30th. I will be on crutches for 6 weeks while the holes in my femur heal. I can’t wait to (hopefully) not be in pain anymore!
