I heard today that I'm going to have a femoral osteotomy on May 21st. In other words, the doctors are going to break my leg and then reconstruct it before sticking it together with a metal plate and screws. It's sooner than I expected and brings my operations over the past 12 months or so to a round dozen. I'm really hoping this is the last one. I'm going to take my laptop into hospital with me so I can keep you posted.
