Hi there...Lisa here again. I am 5-6 weeks out now and I am finding myself crying during the night worrying about the pain I am experiencing. I am staying with my parents and I am not dure I can do many of thr things my mom does for me. My foot is often on fire and in general, I feel much worse than I did before surgery. I don't have a pair of shoes that will fit my left foot and I can walk very short distances without feeling too weak (in the leg and foot area) to continue. My surgeon told me I should be ready to work in 3 months (teacher) and I can't imagine doing what it takes to move desks set up technical equipment often on my knees, etc. I am scared and each day I hope it's better, but so far not. I see him in January (the two hour car ride there is just too much. So, my question is: will I ever feel normal again?
Thanks everyonemfor your encouragement and support.
