Re: [IP] Injuries healing?-Teresa



Teresa, sorry to say Matt had difficulties healing a broken arm this fall.
Doctors will tell you that diabetes DOES NOT slow healing down at this stage
of the disease (matt dx 2yrs), BUT  I will tell you IT DOES!  Matt broke his
arm in football. Went EVERY week for xrays, and normally according to the
doctor, you will start to see "some" sort of healing after week ONE!  Matt
did not show ANY signs of healing till week FOUR!!! Have patience, he will
eventually start to feel better....Collar bone must be even more difficult,
i would think because it is not casted, and put in a brace???  Atleast
Matt's arm was casted........sorry to hear about the broken collar
bone........let me know how you make out....how old is Justin and how long
has he been diabetic?
