I'm 12 weeks post op for my first operation

10 weeks post op of my second operation. When I got my cast removed (week 9) some of my scar was not healed and looked yellow.

I went to the hospital, a day care centre and m doctors surgery on multiple occasions because I knew something was not right. Eventually I have been diagnosed with MRSA.

I am walking with out crutches in my moon boot and I am back to work tomorrow. It was just a reminder to people of you don't think something is right persist until you know for sure.

    Way to trust your gut! We often doubt ourselves but "we" can only truly know what feels ok or not in our body. A good reminder to others who may not be speaking up. Thanks for sharing. Speedy recovery to you!

      Thank you soccer gal.

      It just wasn't right it wasn't healing it was weeping and I started to get blotches (like allergies) around the wound and I just knew.

      Hopefully it helps people to be safe than sorry.

    Remember to level up your walking whils in boot a shoe to keep you lined up. Got avoid that hip knee and back injury  I'm a bit of a nag about this as it's so important. You can get a shoe called an Even Up Shoe not expensive and could save a wealth of pain

      I think I'm out of the boot Wednesday.

      To be honest my trainer is almost level with the boot so I'm not so bad.

      How about after the boot what do you suggest?
