Monday I had my cast removed and Dr wanted my foot as close to neutral as it could get. Well I was only able to get it half way from post surgery position to neutral so I’m not sure what will happen next visit. This visit was enough for me right now. I was recasted and I told the girl that it was tight at my ankle and this was even before the cast was dry. She said to get it home and prop it up and it should start to feel better. Um……NOT…..I suffered all the way home and got into bed as I was starting to get sick. I should have known before I left the office that my stomach upset was due to the pain but I tried to put it off. So, I got home and in bed. No sooner did I prop my foot up I searched for a comfortable position for about 5 minutes and said I had had it. It’s time to go back. I called the office and she said she would be waiting on me……she was. As soon as my orange cast was removed my stomach pain went away and I felt so much relief in my foot. TOO TIGHT……way too tight. Ok so next cast when right back on and I chose pink again. Want everyone to see me coming and get out of my way because I’m a real clumsy person even on 2 feet…just ask anyone that knows me. Hey, I did this injury shooting pix…..on me, I know!!! Ok new cast is MUCH MUCH MUCH better….but all this activity has worn me out so off to prop my leg up for a few days, which I did and feeling better so far.
Well better, that is until yesterday I have been having spasms in my leg in the mornings and last night I flexed my leg somehow and felt an intense pain along the incision and then a wicked burning. I knew it was hurt last night in it took it a while to calm down then I finally feel asleep once I kept still long enough. Upon waking up this morning again I had muscle spasms and this one shot me out of bed because of whatever it was that I did to hurt it last night. It felt like the incision stuck to the cast but I don’t see any type of bleeding but don’t really know how that would be the case as the cast is not loose. Any type if upward flex of the toes sends me out of whatever chair I’m in usually following up with a deep breath and a few colorful metaphors. All I know to do at this moment is try not to flex anything and sit still…..this too shall pass I keep saying but dang it hurts!!! Next Dr. visit is in 2 1/2 weeks and from how this feels, I don’t see me moving to the boot as I’m not even at neutral yet. Time will tell……!!!!!
