im 16 days from a scarf op, all went well for 10 days then  the pain became dreadful, I did all the right things. I'm on lots of pills for pain but nothing seems to help.  I thought I would be improving a little but not  getting worse.

    That's such a shame, have you had your dressings off? Is your wound clean?

      Wound looks fine, if you can say that. Stitches out,and in cast but cast seeme to tight. Leg and foot keep going cold and that makes the pain worse, wondered if anyone else had the 10 day  backward step.

    I meant to ask if anyone else had  a backwards  step in recovery time.

      Yes it's been seen and no infection.  Cast was so tight that's off and in temp one till Monday , when another cast should be put on.  It seems  to me that all the casts I've had on are so tight it's unbearable ,
