Hello to all! Well I had my second post-op appoinment last Monday. This trip to the doc led me to getting my stitches out… all 20 of them! The doc said that I’m “progressing ahead of schedule”. But I’m still on the 6 week plan of NWB and crutches= SUCKS! I know I just have to be patient. I was still dealing w/quite a bit of swelling. Now I’m just 2 weeks and a day from going into a boot… Thank God! Today, nearly 4 weeks post-op my swelling is going down little by little each day. However, my foot feels absolutely freeky on the underneith side. When I or my wife massages my foot, I get a weird, sharp, shooting sensation going through my foot. I’m curious if anyone else has dealt or is dealing w/this type of feeling/sensation/discomfort in their foot. Also, I’m wondering how long this will continue??? The incision is healing nicely, and the doc also said (after feeling) the tendon is solid and feels good. I’m just sooooo ready to be off these d@mn crutches. They’re truly becoming a major pain now… bring on the boot!!! By the way, I ordered the Vacocast Pro Achilles boot.
