I am on my 4 th day of recovery from surgery. I have been elevating my foot basically all day. I was told that after two weeks I would be put in a boot and the stitches would be taken out. How long do I elevate for? I'm a lil confused about this and everything I've read. When I put my foot down it feels like there is a 1000lbs of pressure. Is this normal? Will it limit with time? Should I wait to stop feeling this pain before I stop elevating? I need help doctors won't call back. Starting to get annoyed. Other than that the pain is tolerable and I'm trying not to take that much of the pain meds. Don't want to get addicted them. Anyone know any info please tell.
