I am 30, and a mum of 2 young children. I just wanted to post about my experience as I had searched for info before my treatment 2 wks ago and was put off by some comments.
here it is
I had both feet done on the same day. the procedure lasted 2hrs or so and I was asleep throughout. when I woke I was pain free as I had 'block' injections to numb the pain when I woke. I felt a tingle sensation but that was it. I started to feel a little pain that night and the nurse gave me tablets to help. The next morning I woke up it was painfull as the block had worn off but it was bearable. I took tablets and was able to watch tv then nap comfortably.
the next morning I had a physio go through some exercises with me then got me on my feet to take some steps. this was a little scary and painfull and took me a couple of attempts (a few tears) but I got there with the crutches and the special heel shoes. I had even managed the stairs (up & down) before I went home but it was hard work and left me tired.
my experience was pleasant and I had great care in the hospital. its been almost 2 weeks since my surgery and I can walk about (slowly) with my shoes and my pain is almost gone. The only thing that is hard is when I stand I get a blood rush to the feet and my feet have a throbbing sensation so I have to elevate them again . I can kind of bend my toes but im well aware it will be another 3-4 wks before I feel anywhere near 'normal' again.
il get my bandages removed in 2 days so il finally see my new feet.
any questions please ask
