First off, I am down to 247#. I'm kinda in a stall with my weight loss, though. My weight has been jumping up and down for about two weeks now.
I called about the brace, just to find out
how much it would cost me. $800 for just the trial brace and it's an
immobilzer!?! There's a chance that Medicare would pay for it, but I'd
still have to pay $200 for something I would never wear?!? NO! I
wouldn't be able to use my recumbant bicycle with it! I need something
that will keep my kneecap stable so I can ride it, not something that's
going to make me bedbound again! Oh well, I found something cheaper
that might work. It's a patella brace but it'll allow me to move.
Nothing much else going on. Things are pretty calm around here. Having a hard time adjusting to day shift, though. Usually, I am asleep at this time, but for some reason I stayed up. The past two days I have slept all through the night, though.
I see my surgeon's assistant on Friday afternoon. We'll see how that goes. Thanks, everyone, for all of your support.
