Pics Day 39-Still Healing

Das BootScarWeek 4-5 Pics

Here are some pictures of my scar still healing on the bottom portion. I took these pictures a couple days ago and they seem to be healing very well. I also took a picture of the huge boot ala Dennis’ Pic.  Thanks Marianne for the tip on how to post!

    Definitely looks like its healing well. Have you started getting massages?? Also ask about a compression sock that will help with the swelling. Nutrition wise…Vit B6 2-300 mg per day also can decrease swelling.

    Keep up the good work you’re getting closer to being in 2 shoes.

    thanks for the great pics,
    it’s good for the soul as i lay here, foot up, to see other people progress, especially when the results look as good as yours. i’m weeks away from the boot stage, but can’t wait to get my manky leg out of these casts.
    take it easy,

    Doc Ross-They have yet to do a massage on my AT because there is still a little scab there, but they have been doing some foot massages at PT. Thanks for the Vit B-6 suggestion, I will go out and get some today. I have been taking Colostrum, which I heard that helps in recovery, Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Multi-Vitamin and tons of Protein Shakes. Just bought a compression sock yesterday as a matter of fact. Swelling comes and goes depending on the work load as you know. Everything seems to be helping and getting better everyday it seems, just listening to my body and what it tells me.

    offdibb-Hang in there my friend! Every week gets better! Take it from your blog buddies, we all have been there. Take it slow, it is frustrating but taking it slow is the only way to go.
