I'm so relieved! I was really dreading my revision, but I had a terrific consult with my surgeon today. I'd emailed him 12 questions and he responded to them with so much information, intelligence and by showing me examples on my X-rays of why things are bad and how he will fix them. I feel so much better going into this. One thing he said that struck me is that he cares less about PT and more about ongoing movement – walking, riding my stationary bike as soon as I feel up to it. It has been a hellish 14 months (and dh is "loaded for bear" re: suing surgeon #1) but can it be that I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel?
Oh, and Dr. B. mentioned that my surgery will be on his birthday!
