My wound is healing well and just about fully closed. Unfortunately, i still have to work and my foot still gets swollen every day and shrinks when i go to bed and put my leg up. I keep it on a stool at my work desk to help a little bit.Just recently the wound on my foot would feel uncomfortable even while sleeping. It felt like it was stretching - could that be the pulling of the skin back together(a bit of the wound is still open)?
I visited a local Physio on Tuesday, I am just so relieved that i saw her. She is truly amazing. I am going to the hospital today for an ultrasound, seeing the Physio and my surgeon/doctor (who i am seeing for the first time in 4 weeks). This was actually my Physio’s idea which is something my mother disagreed with at first. I am excited that my recovery is well under way now.
An orthopedic surgeon will be visiting the Cook Islands (home country) next month - who happens to be my Physio’s former work colleague. She says he is a very good doctor and made an appointment for me :). I have been excercising my foot trying to move my ankle back and forth but it still feels very tight and fragile but that could just be me exagerating. There is no pain though.
I wish you all the best
