Dear Kathy

I am so sorry to read you have been suffering for the best part of 8 months including constant discomfort.

Obviously I hope you do not have to wait till next March and that the healing process is resolved resulting in no pain or discomfort in early course.

Glad to read your latest post. Hoping  improvement continues.

Hugs

Pamela xx

Awesome news Kathy.

I'm glad Dorit was able to share that information with you.

Susan's place is great for information sharing and friendships.

Hugs

Dorit, thank you, thank you, thank you for that suggestion! 

I tried my old firm control briefs, and the result is amazing.  The swelling is magically gone.  I wish I'd thought of this months ago.  I should have: I know to put a tensor bandage on a twisted ankle to keep it from swelling.  This works just as well.

Please thank your physical therapist for me.

Wonderful to hear that it works for you too!

I now have the long term solution, I will have a revision with the original surgeon Dr. Leis in Philadelphia.  It is scheduled for December 14, 2020.  Coincidently that is the same date as my original GCS!
