Hello fellow bunionless soldiers.
High on apprehension, I went for my follow-up appointment today. Husband couldnt find his mobile just as we were due to leave, increasing the anxiety too max level. Then they couldnt find my notes, was so glad they didnt take my BP or pulse rate!
The unveiling revealed a rather slender foot that didnt like it belonged to me. Virtually no swelling, no bleeding either and the Registrar whom I saw when I had the post op bleeding said my foot looks just like it should do.
Didnt have to have the stitches removed as they resolve themselves, dont have to wear the wedge shoe at night in bed, just keep off foot as much as poss for next month. Nurse cleaned the foot up and put a dressing on which I am to remove in a week, and that's it for a month. Am very elated as was anticipating being told off for doing too much.
So very thrilled with how my foot is looking even now, Rather a big gap between big toe and 2nd toe now, but I think I can live with that, maybe it will gravitate back though I guess after 20 years, that is unlikely, didnt get a chance to ask the Registrar as he was in a rush.
So so so relieved. yippee dorothy81861
