I'll shoot with my short story and hopefully you guys won't get bored reading it! Dec 2016 I fell in my home. I thought at the time it was a grade 3 sprain on my right ankle. Also while falling down I landed my right leg/foot on my left foot and damaged my great toe...... OUCH! No one believed me that the damage was much more worse than "just a sprain" .... of course when they see a middle aged women come in and complain they don't see anything else except age and some extra weight! ha...
June 2017... finally found someone who saw something in my X-Rays from 2016! HIP HIP HOORAY!
Surgery # 1//// Left great toe Cheilectomy Aug 2nd 2017
Surgery # 2/// Right ankle Ligament and tendon repair/
screws and what ever else he put in there.
Surgery #3/// Left MTP first toe fusion. due to the Cheilectomy not working. ....
Ok.. so if you are still with me, HELP!
10 days as of today out of the fusion surgery. I feel like crap!
Is this normal? Haven't had my post op yet/ next week so I'm still in the stitch time and wrap.............. walking on my heel/ side. Stopped my OXY as of yesterday, I took one at night
?to give me some relief. Mixed with 1000 MIL of Tylenol. once a day or every 8 hours.
But today for some odd reason, I feel awful. The toe is pained quite a bit again... seems to be underneath the toe/ pain/ burn/ pins and needle feeling.
Oh I know some of this or all of this is normal but what is my time line of feeling good? I woke up today out of it.
I want to sleep..... my body just feels blaaa.....
Any advise to what to do or how to get through this.... ? Did I stop OXY to soon? Am I being a baby?
The first two surgeries were tough, but this one is taking the prize of kicking my butt!
Off my rant...
Thanks in advance
