I am new to this site so bare with me
On Thursday 1st December I had a bilateral scarf osteomety/hallux vagus correction! I have two screws in each foot that are permanent. Surgery went well and I left the hospital with crutches and some sexy looking wedge shoe things!
I'm on day 4 and currently no longer in much pain, I have random sharp shooting pains in my feet and big toes now and again, but I've read that this is all normal!
I've had my feet elevated on a mound of pillows since returning from the hospital and have only got up to use the bathroom which is 6 feet from my bedroom. Today I felt a bit naughty and headed downstairs to sit in the garden for 5 minutes. After being in bed for 3 days it was sensational to get some fresh air!
However, an hour after that I have had some strange sensations in my feet. It feels like they are extremely heavy? Like I have a concrete block sitting on top of them and pushing them downwards? This is also accompanied with strong pins and needles in my feet and ankles.
Is this normal??? It's not painful, but GOODNESS ME IT'S ANNOYING. I can't get comfortable at all! I feel like I need to move my feet around constantly to stop the heaviness!
Any advice or reassurance would be most appreciated!
