My first Dr. visit since surgery. He took the cast off and said everything looks good. He’s not ready to take stitches out yet, so I am set up for next week for suture removable. My scar didn’t look as bad as I thought. Its about a 5-6 ” cut starting at the back of ankle. He told me he had to cut about two inches of tendon off and reattached to heel bone. I’m still trying to get use to these dang crutches. I ordered a knee walker . They have them on sale for $295.00 instead of $450.00. I decided to get a pink cast this time. I told the Dr since I will be in and out of his office so much, I will have tried all the colors. I did have nightmares about how they cut a cast off. This is my first time with a cast, and all I thought about was a drill and my skin. It wasn’t too bad. Hope everyone is keeping that leg elevated and not going stir crazy
