Geez, can’t believe its been 2 weeks since the rupture! Well Vegas was a success! It was a little rough, but with the help of my sister (albeit her hidden resentment) it was one of my favorite times in Vegas!
My brother was my personal chauffeur to the airport (we took the train), because I obviously couldn’t take my suitcases around. Got to airport earlier than usual just in case. It took my 10 minutes to get to my gate. They pushed me right through everything. So onto the plane I go. Flight out wasn’t so bad. Took a Bayer about an hour before take off so it didn’t feel like too much swelling.
The whole trip was great. I probably over did it- a 5 hour concert, beach party, nightclubs… but my trooper of a sister pushed me around during the day and I slept with a pound of ice and my leg up when i finally did go to sleep.
The trip back was a little tougher. My leg was swollen before I went up, so I took another Bayer and this time had the attendant give me a bag of ice. It helped.
So now I am back. Im a definite pro at the hands free crutch and crutches. I go in for my post op appointment Thursday. I can’t wait to take a look and shave my leg and take pictures…(sorry maybe TMI)! It feels as tho my incision is rubbing against the inside of the cast, and kind of irritated. I have a lot of room cuz my leg has lost a lot of size. I’m also starting to get funny nerve tingles throughout my heel and bottom of foot. Kind of cool-except when there is a little pain. Im hoping that this is all normal and its just the art of healing.
Anyways I’ll be back on Friday to let you know how the appointment went!!! Happy Healing!
