So I saw Dr. Elliot from the Hospital for Special Surgery today. He’s great. However it turns out that 6 weeks after the surgery I won’t be able to walk. I’ll be in something called an air splint. Apparently I’ll be in it right through the wedding. From what he said I can wear pants and shoes with it on and nobody will see it so it’s not terrible. He put me on Aspirin to prevent blood clots. (Another thing the sucky Stony Brook Doctor forgot to do.) The only thing that kind of bothered me was that the Vikodin prescription he wrote for me was missing my name so my pharmacy won’t fill it. 😦 It’s ok though because I still have Oxycodone left. Still he’s a wonderful Doctor. Guess nothing is perfect.
