I had my first appointment since surgery on Monday. They took the stitches out (which barely hurt at all) and the nurse and doctor said everything is healing “perfectly” and it looks “beautiful.” The doctor is very happy with how things are looking and although he said we are not completely out of the woods yet in terms to wound issues but it looks pretty good. He also said that my foot is at a much better starting angle to begin with. Before surgery it was expected that we would have to move and re-cast at least three times. Now he said in two weeks it will be cast at a neutral position. So for now I am in a hard (non-weight bearing) cast for two weeks.

Two Weeks Post-Op

This is my first time in a hard cast so it has been annoying getting used to it. I don’t like how my foot feels like it is being squeezed. As time goes on I get more and more used to it. It’s just annoying that my summer is wasted because of this. I can’t believe it has almost been one month since this whole thing started. It’s pretty crazy.

I feel you, casts are evil. I am on my second one and showers are awful! I am so ready for weight bearing. Good luck with your recovery.

This is a bad thing, I hope you don’t have to deal with it for too much longer, and that it will al be over soon.
