My leg and the last 2 months

Recommended Posts

@TheManFromPOST

if you need to kill some time in short bursts, I wasted a good chunk of last night/this morning watching things like this, and being unsure just how I feel about each example of skill, from a professional standards and aesthetics POV, as well as just what I'd like to eat personally (like, lemon curd doughnuts are nice, but all that stuff on top makes it difficult to pick up and eat, which is my usual argument against stupidly large burgers).

IDK if 'armchair' criticism is something that's entertaining or depressing for you tho'.

dang !  sorry to say that's not an infrequent problem with diabetic amputations

 

part of the problem is that diabetes damages the very small blood vessels that are important for so many things (eyesight / kidneys / heart) and one of the things poor circulation impedes is healing

 

but yeah, you don't need complications... you'd like to think that christmas was the time for all the trimmings  😞

it seems that the problem is that they had to work with the skin flap from 2 years ago (see page 1)

it complicated the surgery 3 weeks ago and is being (blamed is not the right word) for my current situation

yep, tissue already "interfered with" has significant limitations

 

i remember from my times as a surgical type that diabetic amputations were always a trade-off between "going higher" with the level, versus attempting to leave significant joints in play for improved mobilisation with a prosthesis

 

as such, it was sadly quite common to end up needing further revisions due to complications that might arise - and it's not like there's any easy way to predict success

 

 

consider your leg is like software, and we're now at leg 2.3 (i think)... may all your bugs be non-pathogenic

 

 

best wishes, mate 🖖

Just read through all the posts upto the time of this one...  Jeez, man.  It doesn't actually do a thing for you I know, but "thoughts and prayers" - except for the prayers part, since I'm a godless heathen. 😜

This will sound cruel, but I could wish they'd done that  first.
