PAUL WHERTON’S OPERATION.
Hi all, just an update as i have just had another operation on my left arm as the original broken radius bone had been fitted with a titanium plate of which slipped and the bone healed shorter than it’s ulner bone brother, so they have gone back in the original incision and removed the plate and sewn me up and then made a 4 to 5 inch incision up the outside edge of my arm and broken and cut some bone out of my ulner bone and fitted a titanium plate to hold this bone together, result should be that both bone’s are the same length if not shorter than the original arm the hand/wrist knuckles should be aligned .
The operation took two to three hours and i spent a day and night in hospital and i am now at home with my arm in half plaster half bandage and sling to be kept still and elevated and treated as two broken arm bones as the screw holes have to heal in the radius until it is strong and when both bones have healed i need an operation to remove the titanium plate as it can’t be left inside my arm in this case has to be removed to stop it fouling on my tendons.
This has to say been a very trying road to recovery and i can hand on hart say wanted to give up at times but the support from my long suffering wife Michelle and my two boys and all my friends Bigfoot and all has been fantastic.
So keep it up and stay in contact, pop up and see me and have a cuppa and some biscuits because i am one big fed up bored guy seven months on and i have still got a long way to go, i am at home every day and evening contact me on 07757495563.
