2 week Post Op visit

Filed under: Uncategorized — shep @ 6:13 pm

Got my stitches out today.  Scar is about 3 to 3.5 inches.  Healed really nicely per the Physicians Assistant.  I haven’t been out of the boot for 2 weeks and thought I would wash it.  Also, got to take a shower and rub off some skin.  Felt good to have water on it.  Thought I would take the time for a photo opp.  Anyway, looks good to me and feels really good. 

The PA told me to stay NWB for 2 more weeks and then start walking on it.  I go back in 4 weeks.  I think I was more excited about the visit than they were.  Not a lot of news.  In and out in 15 minutes.  I also took some time to move it around a little and get my ankle loosened up.  Well, back in the boot I go.

The time goes by quickly if you set little goals.  I am so glad my doc didn’t put me in a cast.  I can get it to what I feel is 90 degrees.  My goal is to play in our member-member golf tournament the second week of October.  A lot of time between now and then, but hey, I’ve got the time.

  1. Doing great!! You are already past the worse part, the first 2 weeks!! Try to wiggle your toes often, but don’t bend your foot. You have the same treatment path I have
    and at 4 1/2 weeks I was able to stand FWB without the boot. Read my posts!! Some advice I can give is, the night before you go back to have
    a wedge removed, take it out and test drive it. The only pain I really had was when the second wedge came out!! Hang in there, it will get better soon.
