I’m now 17 days post-op and things are progressing well, but I wanted to mention two issues.

The first is the incredible amount of skin that is flaking off. This isn’t “leg dandruff.” It’s more like my lower leg is a snake shedding it’s skin. My wife got me a loofa pad, so I’ve been scrubbing for the past three showers and I think I’m finally done shedding. Part of it was just being in a splint for two weeks, part of it is because my calf is really shrinking.

The second issue is the tingling and numbness I’m experiencing. After searching through this site, I think these symptoms are typical of a disturbed sural nerve. Nothing to do about it - the tingling and numbness should decrease over time. Comments from those with the same symptoms?
