So I had my left ankle fusion on the 17th May and I'm really getting fed up now! I've had 7 ankle ops in 12yrs and this was my only opinion to get rid of the pain.
I was in a cast for 6wks and now a boot for 6wks. Got my next clinic appointment to see my consultant in 2wks and I may have to wear the hated boot for another 4wks! So that could be 18wks in a cast/boot 😕
Can't really get out and about, I rebelled yesterday and drove my car for 30mins and now I'm shocking amounts of pain...it so wasn't worth it!
Painkillers do not work, been on them for yrs because of the surgeries, stronger slow release morphine ones make me feel out of it! Even the nerve pain meds aren't working.
Since yesterday I've started getting pain on the front of my foot which was previously numb. I've had that many ankle ops so the whole front of my foot is numb. Now even if anything touches it, like socks or bed covers and it agony.
Trying to entertain my little ones and dogs in the house is getting hard work too, they are off school so hence that want to run around! And then my poor dog looks at me as if to say when are we going out mum?!
Sorry for the rant/moan...I really try to keep happy and smiley around my family/children/friends but I'm struggling now! Xx
