I spoke to the doctor yesterday and she said that the 'bogginess' or fluid moement was to be expected, that unless I had a fever or the dressing was wet, I was to expect the feeling that there is fluid under the skin, she says that the nerves are coming back and that there may also be old blood in the wound. So I try to elevate and me all the toes, so as not to be too stiff. I was concerned about this feeling of a bubble on the area on top of the foot, is this normal?? Thanks
