I had my surgery (Akin/Scarf osteomy) 2 weeks ago today. Both feet done at the same time. I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of severe pain after the op and was feeling very positive when I went back for stitches to be removed yesterday. The thick bandages were removed and now I just have plasters over the stitches which I am allowed to remove. I was advised to massage bio -oil into the scars. However I was also fitted with splints which I am finding very uncomfortable and at times eg when my feet are really swollen quite painful. I was told to wear them 24/7. I can't find any mention of this problem and wonder if most people have splints. Also has anyone found the swelling worse after the bandage has been removed --I think there was some kind of compression bandage next to my feet under all the layers and that that may have kept the swelling under control more. It certainly seems worse today. Still very early days i know but don't the days seem long when you can't be busy!!
