2 Weeks Post Op, the 4th, and the Opthamologist, Oh My!


I can not believe it has been a week since I last wrote, so much yet so little has happened. I still get to spend about 6 hours a day in the CPM machine, as well as wearing my oh so lovely hip brace when I go out. At this point I am in almost no pain. I also had to get new crutch tips because chunks of rubber were coming off of my old ones.
Oh and do you see that split in the top?


On the 4th of July I did not do much during the day, I decided to get through my CPM time so I could go out at night. It was nice to get out since I did not go out much last week except for various doctor appointments. I made s'mores and watch fireworks with my friends.

My friend was very insistent that the chairs were stable and I should sit on one because of my hip.

Fireworks!

On another note, today I had an opthamologist check up, and I am happy to say I am Uveitis free! It was the first time I had discussed the possibility of me finding another specialist at school with any of my doctors. He gave me the name of a doctor at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia that treats Uveitis. I am not sure if I am going to switch yet. On one hand in may be good to continue seeing the doctor who is familiar with my case but on the other side, if I have an issue that comes up while I am at school I will have no choice but to see the new doctor so maybe it is a good idea to see her before I have a problem. Next week I will bring it up with my rheumatologist.
