This is exacty how I feel. My hardware removal surgery is on Tuesday. I love your blog.... I've had so many similiarities, with your experience. The only difference is that I did get a blood clot from surgey #1, that was scary and painful but I'm good now. Thank for putting this out there.... it's super helpful!
You got a blood clot?!! Aggghh that was my worst nightmare! But you survived...good for you :)I'm glad the blog is so helpful to you - good luck to you on your upcoming surgery...it's definitely easier than the first one, but give yourself patience and time to heal again.
