One week post-op and I had my first follow-up visit.
My splint was removed and I had my fist look at the damage. There were approx four stitches and a bundle of staples up the back of my leg. The Doc inspected the wound and was happy with the progress. I was put in a fibreglass cast and told to schedule an appointment one week later for removal of staples and stitches.
I asked the Doc about returning to work. When we first spoke about the surgery, he told me to expect to be off work for two to three weeks. When I asked about returning to work during this visit he said everything looked good so I would be able to return to work right away - but to keep the weight off. My desk job made that relatively easy. I was a little disapointed not to have the two weeks off, but in reality is was good to get back into the swing of things. My boss was also very happy to have me back early.
Another appointment in a week.Filed under Uncategorized |
