I had bunion surgery 10 days ago. I had several screws and a titanium Plate fused to my metatarsal joint.
I fell with the knee scooter and slammed my surgical foot on the living room carpet. It was painful! I did call the doctor. Of course it happened on the weekend and he is out of town. Next x rays in a week. Seem to be alright just more swelling. Did anyone here ever have a mishap and was alright after it?
I am non weight bearing for 4 weeks, age 51, and I have a knee scooter. It only fell because I over turned it and reached for something I dropped. I was over confident in my scooter skills. 😂
Oh and I was not wearing my surgical shoe! It was just a bathroom run...now I am wearing it everytime I move. Please share your stories....hoping I will be ok. It doesn't hurt more. Dr took a wait and see attitude. He said the plate is in pretty good...but Wear your surgical shoe boot! 😕
