No news is good news

Third post-op apt. Doc took the final wedge out and told me to “assume the position” (on stomach with feet hanging off the end of the table). There is a small nub of scar tissue at the top of the incision which he said to leave alone. It looks almost like a pimple or bug bite. He said “your body will eat that”. He said 7-10 more days in the boot and then 2 shoes!!!! He checked ROM and said it is almost normal. I also mentioned that although I attempted to call in my scrip for PT a week ago, the soonest they could get me in is next week Monday. His response was, “That’s fine, good even - since more time to mend is better.” He then mentioned that there was a high degree of likelihood that my calf would never be the same size as the unaffected side. Honestly, I don’t care at this point as long as I can function normally and keep up with my 1 yr old. He had me “press the gas pedal” while I was on my stomach and seemed pleased with my effort.

PT starts next week and 2 shoes is not far off. All very exciting.

  1. I had one of those pimples at the top of my incision, too. PT called it a blood blister or something. It totally went away. Congrats on making it to the 2-shoes club!

  2. Never mind
