Can anyone tell me what their scar looked like 5-6 weeks after surgery and what their foot felt like at that stage?
My whole scar has healed really well, except for one small area along the top of my 1st metatarsal. The area is only about 1cm long and 0.5cm wide, so not big at all, but it's still covered with a scab and it keeps leaving tiny drops of fluid after I have a shower. Do you think it's normal at this stage? How long did it take before your scars have completely healed and all the scabs were gone?
How did your foot/toe feel 5-6 weeks post op.? Was it already fully flexible or was it still somewhat stiff? Did you experience any swelling/change of colour at that stage? I can move my toe but it's still somewhat stiff and can hurt when I try to stretch it. Also, it seems like my foot is permenently but only very slightly swollen along the 1st metatarsal and the big toe. When I overdo it with activity it can get beetroot red and feel tired or slightly painful but I don't really notice any more swelling except for the amount that seems to always be there, regardless of what I do. Do you think it's normal?
