Had foot surgery to remove an "Accessory Bone" from the arch of my Right foot. The incision scar (which is still healing) is about 4" long, starting from the center of my arch to mid heal. Was non-weight barring for 4 weeks, but still needed to wear a boot so the muscles stretched out enough. Was having problems with the boot edge touching into my incision area (it was right where the plastic edge/foam padding was). Today was the first official wieght barring day. My doctor gave me a boot with an air linner to use, hoping it would help. Could stand on 2 feet, and take 3 steps by the end of today. Unfortunatly, everytime I took a step, my boot would dig into my incision area making it very painful. Even wearing the boot while elevating is painful, since it is still putting pressure on the incision area.
Does anyone have anytips for protecting my incision area from pressure pain while walking? Tried taking one of the extra foam squares and velcroing it to my incision area, no luck. A larger sized boot will not work, they all have the same width at the bottom of the boot. I should also note that I usually have to wear wide width shoes, normal width shoes are too tight for my heal and arch. Would love any suggestions, I want to be able to walk on 2 feet again.
