HI, My name is Andrea and last March I had surgery to fuse my right ankle and foot. I was in a bad car wreck 10 yrs ago and the Drs have been talking about amputation this whole time. Since last March I have had a second surgery on my foot. 3 hospital stays and two foot ulcers from various cast issues. Currently I have a pic line in my arm and get iv antibiotics every 12 hrs for the next 8 weeks to see if we can heal a bone infection in the foot.. My foot ulcers have finally healed but we are working on a blister on top of my left foot. Since I am currently bonding with my wheelchair I can not do much walking. I am insulin dependent. In one year I have gained roughly 10 pounds. At my heaviest I weighed 400 pounds I am below 300 now but I am scared the weight will creep back. I cannot do any meaningful exercise. Anyone have any ideas? forgot to mention my left arm because of a different accident can not reach farther then my forehead. I cannot hardly lift with it and right now type one handed. Any ideas?
