So today was my lucky day, allegedly!!!!! Anyway went for my follow up visit since post op cast & my leg looked like something from sesame street-yes a muppet. Hairy, ugly, skinny, unrecognizable to me as my own, but too pathetic to give up on. My new boot is ok. It is heavy, medal, ugly, painful, and completely NOT at all what I thought it would be. I am still non weight bearing. I guess I expected a miracle. Oh well maybe next month. Anyone else have a lot of numbness around the ankle area? How about dried blood from surgery? Good news, I soaked in the bathtub tonight for the first time since labor day- half full. Hope you all are well & recovering quickly!!!!
