No Corrosion

I returned to Starnberg this week to have this removed from my collarbone. The metal plate was installed one year ago this month by doctors in Victoria after I was hit by a snowboarder on Mount Washington. I have an acute infection of the soft tissue that was being complicated by the metal plate with risk of bone infection so doctors here and in Canada said it was medically necessary to get the hardware out. I am recovering well thanks to the wonderful care of my mother-in-law and the orthopedic surgeon and his medical team. When all continues well, stitches come out in two weeks or so and then back to Sardinia and the boat.

  1. Glad to hear everything went well!! No wonder your body rejected that hardware as I can not believe the size and amount of materials. I am glad it is out and I am sure you will have less complications. I will give you a call .


  2. Super! But, say, did you not need those screws (and the metal lizard) to keep the shoulders in place or whatever? Or has your bone come back to normal now?
    Enjoy the Bavarian fare while you can!
