David’s wound is finally closed

Day 137 after accident. The good news is that David’s 9 cm x 4 cm wound is now officially closed, which took more than three months since the last operation. This means that additional therapies to restore leg function can now start (including water therapy and electric shock treatment of the muscles), and that David can wear more normal footwear on the left foot (as winter approaches). The bad news is that he will have to have another (routine, elective) operation in December to transplant bone material, since the gaps in the bone are not closed. All in all, he’ll be on crutches for quite a while yet as the leg can still not take full weight (maximum half body weight, reducing to 15 kg after the operation again), but it could have been an amputated leg! And we are still trying to get the dosage of Marcoumar (anti-coagulant) right…
