    I've been cleared!

    Hey, everyone! I went to Dr. Kuwamura on Wednesday and he said my healing was excellent! It was SO good that he told me to keep doing what I am doing, plus cleaning the house and such (I knew there was a down side to getting better). I am six months post-op and I am officially healed. I do not have to see my doctor again for a year! He showed the growth that has already taken place! I am still wearing the brace for comfort when I walk long distances and when I am in the car. Other than that...I walk straighter and feel better than I have in 10 years at least! Linda
