Hi well i had the op last sunday so am now 6 days post op i had a metatarsal osteotomy and pip fusion, i have not been given much info for post op i am still getting pain every so often like a throbbing burning pain i am managing to walk around with the wedge shoe they gave me and the pain is not too bad most of the time i just get it every so often mostly when sitting when my foot is elevated. i do rest it most of the day. it feels very stiff and sore.
My main concern is infection i have no idea what it looks like under the dressings and been told when discharged from the hospital that i have to keep this foot bandaged and wait for appt to have sutures removed.
This i am told is approx 2 weeks, which apparently i will get appt through the post for.
There has been no mention of me having to go for dressing change and just worry that it may not be healing.
Does anyone else feel like this?
