Hi all,
Hardest thing I have ever done. It will be 7 mos on Dec 9th, since accident and surgery. Back at work, but have lost almost 2/3 clientele and may quit the salon Going to the gym at least 6 x a wk to do different forms of cardio and rehab; trying to regain balance and strength and sure footedness. I did return to Papago and do some hiking, but was too terrified to cross the creek @ West Fork,,,kinda froze there, so afraid to slip! Steps are still difficult, and trying to get my brain to retrain my leg now that is has a big chunk of titanium in it and not sure what to do with that. It's called a Stryker Gamma Nail short btw. I am told I am the poster child for most rapid healing of this devastating injury. Maybe I'll get some royalties!! I hope I continue on the healing path and may be able to hike again with confidence . Onward! Smile

Geez Georg...glad you are coming along OK and on the road to recovery. I'm back in Ortho recently and we deal with Stryker products all the time. Sounds like you had multiple fractures Sad for them to put a Gamma nail in.
