Looks like plenty of good hardware is available.

So Bbob, I've been doing "dirty" Keto for about 5 months now. The only things I really watch are carbs, less than 30 net carbs per day, and calories less than 2000. I do go over a bit often.
By traditional standards, I should have had a heart attack months ago as I'm eating eggs and extra think bacon every day, burgers for lunch, steak twice a week. No bread, pasta, sugar, chocolate milk, ice cream etc. I'm doing 2 5 mile hikes a week, 2 days at the YMCA on the machines, and we do 2 3 or 4 mile walks on the weekends, I started at 218 lb. Today I weighed in at 181.8. This is my lowest weight since the 1980s. I hope to stop at 175 and keep it there for the duration. One other bonus, I use to eat 2 Papcid complete every day with few exceptions. I never eat them anymore.

Huge update!

Picc line removed Thursday. Today I saw my ortho about the knee removal.

Well, I guess I am waiting....the time frame is small due to the infection in my knee. The Ortho is shopping my case around for someone to fuse my knee together. Apparently my case is SO complex that he says a bone cancer specialist will probably be the one doing it. He says my best bet at the moment is Shands in Gainesville, Florida.

That would be perfect, you talked about this option a looonnngggg time ago, you could have a "normal" life again, no more infection, we all think or pray for the best decision of a infection free life, no matter what happens to your leg....

Still waiting.....I am beginning to think that they are not going to find someone and amputation will be in my near future.

Do you get to keep the leg? You could carry it around a kick people with it.


Don’t take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.

I am laughing.....well....bomb went off....99.9 fever and chills. Not sure how long I have. Wound care is talking about lancing and culturing. My ortho knows.

Damn. Sorry MD.
It is what it is....guess I will be under the knife again soon....kinda looking forward to it. Not wanting to hit my retirement though. I have been making so much money with the way the market has been going. :(

Thanks! I had a return of 25k on my 401k last year. As for my leg, I have no clue what is going on. Just have to wait on these doctors.

I have surgery in Gainesville, Florida on Thursday. I have an orthopedic oncologist going in to remove my knee, all hardware, and scrape the infection out. If it is doable, he will implant an antibiotic delivery system and sew me back up. Then if they can, they will either fuse or put in a knee. The knee would probably be pretty useless considering all the stuff that is tore up in it, soft tissue wise.
