J had a follow-up appointment last week.... Things are starting to heal. To recap, his ulna was too long and had already caused damage to other bones. These are the x-rays 5-6 weeks out- if you look at the X-rays, you can see a line where they cut through the bone- in the middle of the screws. 3 screws, line, 3 more screws. On the outside- opposite the plate, you can see new bone growth. The line will fill in as it heals.
The doctor made photo copies of the X-rays for us. I think it is uber cool.
