I am day 3 days post op. Feeling sore & swollen plus bored. However I did prepare for all this in advance but still feel a little fed up., hence on the internet & finding this helpful site to keep me going & positive for a good end result if I do as instructed & take advice from others. Feet elevated , ice packs are really helping me & of course planning pain killers so I don't over/under do them. I do feel helpless as I am use to running around - got to stay like this until Wednesday 23 July when back at the hospital. I was only kept in the hospital for a few hours after surgery & have just about managed the trendy shoes & crutches. I do have a downstairs loo so only need to use the stairs morning & evening when I have been going up & down on my bottom & I have a frame over my feet in bed to keep the covers off my feet. Tonight after reading on here I am going to raise my feet on a pillow for the night. It's great sharing experiences with others especially those that have had both feet done together - Karen x
