post-op

Four days post- op, this foot looks better than the other one did at the same time. Notice the left foot, which is now 3 1/2 weeks out, is looking pretty damn good! My physical therapist is encouraging, and says my left foot is making good progress. I have no pain in it, and can walk pretty well, with a slip on sneaker. My right foot however, is still quite multi-colored, and is painful. If I don’t stay off of it, I need to take more pain killers, and it feels like there is alot of pressure in it, and it throbs… painfully. I have most of the sensation back in the first foot, but have not got much in the right toe at all.
overall, I am happy with the whole thing, but now going stir crazy with not being able to drive. I bagged using the crutches 2 yesterday. was just ‘done’. I am still wearing the surgical shoe though. and still tired alot.
can’t wait to have the second one feeling as good as the first one now does!
