Ouchie!!



I had my first post-op appointment today. It felt good to have the cast off even if only for a few moments. The doctor took off my cast, cleaned up my foot from the residual bleeding, and then the nurse took these snapshots for me. Looks gross I know!!!! The top doesn't feel that bad, but the bottom incision flippin' hurts!! Big time Ouchie!! I have on a new split cast which should accommodate for swelling. Will return to the doctor in two weeks and at that time they will remove the stitches and probably put me in a walking cast or boot. In the mean time, I am to lay low with my foot above my heart. Man I hope this is the last time I ever have to go through this, hopefully the 5th time is the charm.

Aww, you poor honey. It's a little gross, I guess, but not too terribly bad. I'm just sorry you're still in so much pain. I hope it goes away soon for you. :)

OMG, I feel for you. I had double bunion surgery about 5 years ago, so I had both feet with stitches and pins (had to do it during off season for ds' baseball!) I remember being nice and chilled for the first couple of days, laying in the bed, watching tv, everyone bringing me food, etc. but OMG, by the 3rd or 4th day I was stirr crazy! I even had Jenna bring me my scrap stuff and tried to scrap in bed!!! Take care! Hope this works out for you this time!!!

OW!! I had no idea they cut you so much. Poor thing. I wish we were much closer and gas wasn't so ridiculous so we could be there with you.
