I had my second follow-up visit.
Fibreglass cast removed as were my staples and stitches. You definitely know when the staples are being removed. They are not painful, but feel as though someone is pinching you. Some pinches are harder than others. Removal of the stitches was pain free - slight pinching, but nothing like the staple removal.
The Doc had a look at the wound and was pleased with the progress. Replaced fibreglass cast with foot in an almost neutral position. What a difference having foot in a natural feeling position.
We discussed the timeframe for weight bearing. Doc is a believer of no weight for 6 weeks after surgery. He is the expert - although I have seen various timelines for weightbearing on this site - so I will be four more weeks with the crutches.
Another appt in two weeks for a wound inspection and slight angle adjustment.
