Is it normal for the heal of your foot to be feeling numb at the base of the Achilles tendon? My foot been feeling this way since I came out of the splint and went into the boot last week. I am going to see the doctor in the AM for a scheduled appointment and will ask him about this. Other than this numbness and swelling I get, everything seems to be going in order. The fill-in doctor last week was trying to see where my surgeon had went into to obtain the bone marrow aspirate and he could not locate it. I was looking at my foot the following day and I noticed like two stitches remaining on the other side of my foot so I guess this is where the surgeon went for the bone marrow. I will find out tomorrow when I can put weight on this foot because I am so anxious to do it now, but my better reasoning tells me to wait. Hopefully, I can post some more good news so until then: Peace.
