Yes it was painful... very painful for 2 days! Codine would not do the trick so I was given morphin.

I am having lots of rest, and I am taking advantage of getting rid off all the stress and tiredness of being a full time worker a mum of twins a cleaner and of course a wife!!!

I am just a queen with the foot up all day reading books, blogging, watching TV. 

I know I am on the way of getting bored so I hope the consultant will give me good news on the 3rd Jan 2017!

I will keep you posted!!!

    Had my foot operated on the same day. Got my bandage off yesterday and it feels so much better. Doctor wants me to walk a little each day, but the only thing I can do with my foot is put it on the ground while sitting down. One day at a time.

      Good to know you are progressing!

      are you still wearing the special ugly shoe? Did you have pins and screws inserted?

      I am looking forward to removing my bandage and see my new foot
