What a year! Had a knee scope in February, that same knee replaced in June, and opposite ankle scoped last Friday. Apparently they got all kinds of stuff out of there!
Because I have a history of pulmonary embolism after surgery, my surgeon skipped the heavy half-cast dressing and just wrapped it up in gauze with coban and then a cam walker boot to allow greater movement. I was told to always wear the boot when weight bearing, and I cooperated. However, the ankle bone on the outside of my ankle was SO PAINFUL that I went to see the office. Turns out there's a pressure ulcer from the steel bar that runs up the boot.
Anyone else experienced this? I never saw anything like this coming down the pike!
