I'm 9 days post op today from a scarf and akin osteotomy on both feet, with some tendon extensions on my right foot. So far the pain has been tolerable since around day 5 just taking pain meds ad hoc when needed now.
However, last night I had a bit of a shock. I've been sleeping in bed with my feet propped up on a couple of pillows, wearing the heel walking boots as instructed by my surgeon. Anyway last night I was suddenly awoken as the big toe in my right foot suddenly gave an almighty twitch, like I'd tried to bend it upwards really suddenly and I felt this awful pain shoot down my foot where the work has been done. It's back to being bearable today but there's definitely some additional pain in my right foot. I wonder if anyone else has had anything similar or if you think it's possible to do any damage by your toes twitching/moving? Im so worried about causing any ongoing problems by not recovering properly. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!
