Well its that time to go for my next six week check up in my ankle surgery. I can't believe how fast time flies going through this. One day I'm bored silly and the next it feels like 3 weeks have gone by!
Here is what I know: Movement, movement and more movement help to stretch those ligaments and tendons.
You ARE going to have all the time! For some reason I thought I would be pain less at this point . (Nov 13th was my surgery on my ankle)
It will burn, too... oh yes, random burning sensations.. lovely.
It aches too... yup... just like a tooth ache!
Do have your partner, spouse, maid, nanny or kids massage your scares and feet! Its so nice when you are in that pain to have someone else do that for you! Therapy lotions or oils... are GREAT and just think: You are going to have super silky smooth feet when you get better!
Have a back up plan (which I didn't do) and didn't realize I'd be with out a job and or pay for a LONG time!
I heard that you can collect SSI (Social security benefits) going through this but haven't figured that out yet.
Tomorrow I find out about my 3rd and hopefully my final surgery in April! I'm soooo excited! LOL
Best of luck to you all!
