6 weeks update

December 15, 2011 | |

I went today for my 6 week appointment.  The doctor is pleased with my progress and the incisions look much better than they did 2 weeks ago.  The spot that was not healed is now healed over.  He took off the tape that was put on at the first post op appointment.  I have my last cast on and my foot is at the neutral position.

As soon as the cast was off, my arch felt numb.  Since I have asked and have read a lot of your blogs, that seems normal.  He was not concerned.  I was able to push my toes into his hand and I have feeling in my foot.  There isn’t any pain and there doesn’t seem to be swelling.

I asked when I could bike again.  He asked if I could one leg bike and then told me to give it two more weeks until I get into a boot.  I may just go into the boot I had before surgery but I have to take it with me so he can decide.  I am looking forward to getting out of the cast for good but not necessarily to crutches for a period of time. I have been on the knee walker since the second week and was using a walker before that.  I guess I will just have to adjust to the crutches for a while.

I go back to work for the first time tomorrow but only for a half day.  Next week I go as tolerated.  I sit at a computer all day so I imagine I will be able to tolerate most of the day.  I do have to go across campus tomorrow and Monday for meetings but I am hoping I can just drive from one handicapped spot to another. Exams end tomorrow so campus should be quiet for the next few days. I just hope the rain stops.

    The tibial nerve inside offers sensation to the base of the foot. Swelling from damage, joint pain, bone goads, fallen curves, or different conditions could push on the nerve. You may have shooting agony, deadness, and a shivering or consuming inclination in your foot
