Just thought I'd update with the latest and greatest.

Saw the ortho yesterday, it's been 9 weeks with minimal healing in the fractures, but I am starting to callus excessively on the opposite side of the bone and the edema has actually increased, so he said while those are markers of healing, it shouldn't be taking this long to heal. He said initially he had expected it to take about 4 weeks to heal which is why I was in a cast and on crutches for 6 weeks. At this point, he says if it continues to heal this slow, it'll take 3 more months to heal.

They want to do more bloodwork, but considering all the bloodwork I've had, I'll be shocked if they find something new. Should I even waste the money having more tests done?

Anyone ever had an experience with a bone that just wouldn't heal? Apparently it is a union fracture since it is healing, but it's just going slower than Rosie O'donnell in a 400lbs weight limit elevator.

I guess I'm just pissed off and frustrated that it's not healing the way I had anticipated.
