You know, I am kind of amazed at how my healing is progressing. Even though I am NWB, I found myself not needing any more Percocets on about the 4th day Postop. I am taking some vitamin suppliments that I was told would help in the healing process. I went to the GNC store on the day of the surgery and bought some fish oil tablets and turmeric tablets. I take them once a day and I believe that may be helping in the process. I drink Echinacea tea just to help me from infection everyday. The fish oil is supposed to be good for blood function and the turmeric I think is a natural anti-inflammatory. I just find my leg getting sore in the upper thigh from keeping the weight of the tendon when I am not laying down like how I am now while typing this blog. Hopefully at the doctor’s visit next Wednesday, I can be rid of this cast and go PWB in a boot. Like I said in the earlier blog, my doctor used bone marrow aspirate and put it with the tendon to promote faster healing. I think I am on a regular healing pace but just wonder how long did the pain last for anyone else before they no longer needed painkillers. All I want to do now is just relax and let nature take its course. Also, are there any other vitamins out there that might help in the healing process? Thanks.
