I had my last follow up for my quadriceps tendon repair. Interestingly, the worst part was trying to find a $!%! parking space at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital (time for another parking garage, guys).
My last appointment was originally supposed to be three months ago, but the x-ray showed that I had heterotropic ossification (that is, I had bone cells growing inside the muscle/tendon tissue), so I was scheduled for this follow up visit. After all, having new bones freely growing in my leg would have been rather bad.
Fortunately, the x-rays taken today showed that my extra bones had stopped growing and had “rounded off” nicely. I was also checked to make sure my knee cap was in the right place and that the scar tissue would move freely. Everything checked out and I was officially released into the wild.
While I was reasonably sure that everything was fine with my leg, it is always good to have that confirmed.
“Tallahassee Memorial Hospital (time for another parking garage, guys).”
The money will certainly not be there under the eventual form the Health Care Bill takes.
Congrats on the good bill of health though.
