So I am having serious anxiety about going to the doctor tomorrow. Last week having my foot shoved to 90 degrees was so painful and a set back in how I was feeling. I plan on eating and taking a pain pill before I go just in case, even though I havent taken one since last week.
So I have a few questions for all:

If you had casts following surgery, did they push you any farther than 90 degrees?

If I am already at 90 degrees, shouldn’t I start ROM exercises not in a cast, or even partial weight bearing?

How long does it take for the dissolving stitches on my incision to be gone/heal?

Thanks in advance :)
