I am officially 1 week post-op today and a little over 2 weeks since the injury. Most of last week is a blur - yeah for pain meds (insert sarcasm) - I started to wean myself off of them over the weekend and now only take one (except for the occasional Advil) when I go to bed - something about being elevated while I sleep is extremely uncomfortable. I am hoping to wean off those this week so by this weekend I can enjoy a glass of wine I haven’t had one in three weeks (which is def. the longest spurt I’ve had in a looooong while) - needless to say I’m pretty excited
My pain level is good - I went from fairly painful in the beginning to not much now. I can feel some stinging at the back of my ankle sometimes and other pain that I associate with being in the same position too long. Ice is still my friend and will continue to be. Don’t seem to notice too much swelling, which I think is a good thing. My knee is really starting to bother me, so I will be asking my doc about that when I see him next week.
Otherwise, I’m bored. Working from home, which is working out better then expected, but still bored. I try to move locations during the day when I have someone available to move the pillows, computer, cell-phone, water bottle, etc. that seem to follow me Like most people on this site, I am/was fairly active and sitting around is driving me crazy — although its giving me lots of time to plot all the things I want to do once I’m able to be active again
p.s. not sure if it shows up on everyone’s homepage, but there is something not right about seeing a Saks add for really high heels on a site about ankle injuries
