Onward & Upward (6.03.15)
Just arrived at Indiana University North Hospital, and now in pre-op. Beautiful hospital, and very kind staff. Good start to what is likely to be a long day.
Here's a description of my procedure: Ertl Amputation Procedure described by Dr. Jan Ertl. Dr. Ertl may be doing a 2 step procedure, due to my having had osteomyelitis (bone infection). I may have wound vac and not be completely closed up after today's surgery. This way if the osteomyelitis rears its ugly head again it won't be trapped.
