Maureen--You have found the greatest support group ever on this board!! I had surgery on May 25 and could not have made it through the really bad times without these great people.
It really helps to be able to verbalize what you are experiencing and know that there are people who can relate and share with you. The doctors are also wonderful about answering your questions.
I go back to work Wed. I am much better but still have a long way to go. I haven't been on the board in a long time as I have been on the go a good bit. When I do come in for a landing, I elevate and ice alot.
This is the time to really take care of yourself!!! Folks on the board would tell me that this is a slow process, and are they right!! Someone here suggested massage for the foot and that has been one of the best things that I have done for myself, that my husband and mother have done for me, rather. Not deep painful massage, but gentle to moderate.
I sincerely wish you well and promise that as long and drawn out as the tough times may seem--there are brighter days ahead.
Take care and hugs to you! Mary S.
