I am on day 6 of a long anticipated full grueling road to recovery! I am very grateful for Dennis creating such a community where we can all help one another in the different stages of our recovery.
It was late day one, the block must have worn off in my leg and in dire need of any help I could find. The old intraweb was where I turned and AchillesBlog.com site was my savior!
I feel the first two days post op were the worst for pain. The meds helped there fore shore! I have weened my way off the hard drugs and resort to Advil for any inflammation now. Which is usually a direct result of me crutching around more than I should.
Day4 I went for a business lunch to tie up a few loose ends. Yup found out the hard way. Sitting with an elevated leg is not even close to the same as laying down. However elevating my leg correctly to mange comfort and pain is still my biggest battle. As discomforting as it is laying down it doesn’t even come close to the discomfort in sitting. Hence I will just have to do lunches from the couch.
I so so look forward to the day where I can stand up without pain coming down to my foot, sitting instead of laying down all day. Oh and getting out of the two week cast and into the boot cast.
The AchillesBlog has been an absolute blessing and I look forward to experiencing my road to recovery with my fellow bloggers.
