My Screws Are Out

I went in this morning to get my screws out and it wasn't as bad as I expected. I expected it to be easy, but thought I would have some muscle problems. They went in at the top of my scar and never went into my thigh so my range of motion and strength are good. I can feel the incision and a little muscle soreness in my waist area where they cut in. I think they might have had trouble getting out the left screws because the bandage is bigger and thicker, and that area is much more sore than the other side. Of course, much more sore is easy when you have no pain at all on the good side. I can lay on my side already also. The surgery took about an hour and I was home about 4 hours after going in. The funny part of this whole thing is how little it hurts and how many percocet they gave me. My friend went up to the pharmacy and picked up the prescription so I didn't see it until I got home. They sent me home with 50 which seems like a bit much considering after the pao I only took like 20 of them. Oh well, at least I know I will have them in the future when I hurt myself. After all, ski season is about to start. I am going to take a few days off of work and try to let myself heal properly. I will post again soon and add pictures of the screws. My dad was shocked at how long they were, while I was shocked at how skinny they were. If I had known how thin the screws were I might have actually tried to be more careful. My doctor did love hearing about skiing at 12 weeks (turns out he didn't know- his med assistant gave me permission and didn't tell him) and feeling like I broke a screw then going back up for another run. He just laughed and said he wishes he had more patients like me. I never thought I would hear that from a doc.
