Troy had his first follow up appointment today with our Orthopedic Surgeon. He removed the 24 stitches off what looks to be a very clean suture job. Took a peak at the x-rays and commented that the surgeon in Oklahoma (Dr. Couch) did an excellent job of realigning the femur before screwing it together. All is going A-1 for the femur, he does have an issue with the right shoulder though. He has been struggling to use his crutches and has complained of bad pain in the shoulder. The Doc examined the x-rays and feels he may have a non displaced fracture just below where the upper arm goes into the shoulder socket. The Surgeon in Oklahoma also pondered this on the x-rays but they felt in the end it was just the edge of the growth plate. Either way they don't do much for it other than rest so they want Troy to try to remain wheelchair bound instead of using his crutches for awhile longer.
