Hi all you fellow sufferers. Isn,t this web site great?At least we know that we aren,t alone or crazy!
I had EPF surgery about 3 months ago and was told by my surgeon to get up and walk the day after and to keep walking , the more the better. I don,t know if this has anything to do with my slow progress but I am getting extremely frustated.
Others seem to say to keep off it for weeks. What,s the deal with all of this ambiguos advice?
To me, it seems that the more you put your weight on something that is so injured and painful as the foot is after surgery , the longer it will take to heal. But, what do I know, I,m just a humanm not one of these god-like surgeons!!
Has anyone got any stories of success or failure with either method or are we just out here floundering by ourselves? The doctors won't give me a straight answer,other than their classic , "Everyone is different". I know that but I would appreciate some intelligent explaination at times too. I'm not an idiot. Thanks for letting me vent!
