20 days post op

Well its been 20 days since surgery, I got my staples out on the 17th day and boy did the bottom three staples hurt. I was sitting in a wheelchair and the Dr. squatted down next to me w/ hemostats (I think that’s what he used) and started on the 1st one, the one on the very bottom in the soft tissue of the heel.  Well I screamed, grabbed him by the shoulder and said “I can’t do this!”. Then I told him he might want to close the door.  We got thru it but boy was it intense.  So then he told me I could move my foot around as much as I wanted but no weight on it.  I’ve got to wait 2 more weeks for that and then he said I could do as much as I could handle.  I did bring my tallest camwalker I had used from previous foot problems (other foot) and that’s what I wore out of there. 

The incision doesn’t look too bad, gonna be a good scar I think.  I’ve got 2 on the other foot so now maybe it’ll balance out :).  I was wondering if I should get some neosporin to help with the scarring?  Seems like I read that somewhere.

Ok well that’s it for now.
