Post op day 5

Posted by Jen on 4/13/01 at 10:02 (044455)

Can't believe it's day number 5 already!!! But, it has been a slow week.. I'm still non weight bearing with crutches. I wanted to report my improvements. I have no visible swelling on my toes and uppper foot that shows thru the cast or swelling above the cast on my thigh. As long as i keep my foot elevated I don't have any throbbing, I have stopped using the ice after non stop use for 4 days... I have full feeling and mobility of toes that are sticking out of cast with NO pain and can also feel less pulling of my arch when I wiggle my toes. I'm only taking 2 pain pills a day, one in am and one at night...I'll let you know what happens on Monday after visit with ortho... I'm so happy I feel I did the right thing, and with time and rehab I'll be on my way to a 'normal' life again..

I am so happy things are going well for you. I remember how scared you were to have this surgery(we all are). Have a Joyous Easter and May the Lord and his Angels watch over you. Many Blessings. ((Soft Hugs)) Pam
