I see I failed to bring up something else I have going on. A week and a half ago I went in for foot surgery. I had been having a lot of problems with a nerve pain in my right ankle, and an MRI showed a cyst growing next to the nerve. The MRI was not an MRI with Definition, just a standard MRI of the specific location. An MRI with Definition would have show more. No matter, the results would have been the same, a mass next to the nerve. The surgery showed a soft mass about 3/4" in diameter like the MIR showed, but it was just over 2" in length and wrapped around the nerve. I went in for the surgery which went very well, but it was a lot more than we expected.
It was far more difficult to remove than the doctor had thought. Instead of a 2" incision, I needed a 5" incision so he could unwind it from around the nerve without hurting the surrounding muscle, tendons, blood vessels and such. I left with everything out, but with a 5" incision stapled back together. I hurt like hell
for the past week and a half. Every time I moved the ankle it felt like cat claws grabbing the skin, but it was healing.
The wound healed very nicely thanks to the excellent job the doctor did with the staples, anti-biotics and really great pain pills!!
Well, today it was healed well enough to have the staples removed, and while it still aches quite a bit, the sharp pain I would get from trying to walk with crutches is gone, but all the redness is not gone as well. I am hoping to be back on my feet at least, in a couple of days.
I have not seen what progress has been made on the '65 Corvette yet, I am hoping to feel well enough by tomorrow or Wednesday to go over and check. Will post more when I find out.
