I'm 2 weeks post op. I've had the procedure done on both feet. I've had my dressing changed once already on day 6 post op, and nurse was very pleased with the way it looked. Minimal swelling, and in good shape. No complaints from me either. Next day, decided to have my first shower in 7 days (well overdue) and so I stood on my feet (mainly heel baring) for a maximum of 10 mins. After about an hour or so I started getting pins and needles in my left foot only. Tried cold compress, and have my feet elevated 23hours out of 24, but the pins and needles keeps coming and going. and its just in the left foot. My right foot is fine. Despite this i do still walk on my feet (heel bearing) with the post surgical shoes on and with a pair of crutches. But the pins and needles and numbness is driving me crazy. Has any one else experienced this, and if so what did you do? x
