So, 6 days post surgery. I am off the painkillers, just taking a small dose of acetaminophen as needed. Incision site feels ok, tight and tingly with a dull ache. I am catching up on reading, tv (ugh), and surfing the web looking for info related to the injury and surgery. On the rehab front I ice regularly just above the splint, and keep the foot elevated. In addition I have a BEMER unit donated by a friend which emits a magnetic resonance to help in blood flow; figured it can’t hurt. Lastly I started some stretching/strenght training yesterday. Prone on my back I am doing crunches and leg raises in 2 planes. Using the knee role as a bench I am doing thigh curls as well as bicep curls and shoulder presses using a 15 lb hand weight. I am careful to keep the injured leg in a neutral position, and no weight on the foot bottom. Not much of a workout but really helps to keep me from feeling like I am just turning to mush.
