Hi folks ,
You all have been around long enough to know my saga! The bad.... falling Dec of 16. The good.... great doc finally gave me an MRI and found I wasn't cracking up! YEA. The bad.... surgery on the left foot... surgery on the right foot and because first surgery didn't work.... fusion on the left MTP *first big joint* fusion as of April 9th.... 2018.
Scars look great! But the right ankle just still hurts after six months and the fusion is just a heap of pain. I feel I can't go or do anything. My husband took me for a date day on Mother's day and Im telling you I am suffering due to the walking! I had my cane and my special shoe on my fusion foot/ left. Even with sitting for a good amount of time I was hurting and now, today... its been horrid.
Both feet up/ iced and rest.. barely any walking today. to the bathroom and that is it!
Thank God I have some OXY and 600 mg of Tylenol left.! Hasn't relieved my pain much just made me drowsy.
So after a long story: Can anyone tell me it ends? The pain? I can't seem to get to a new normal. Does it ever come? My husband feels bad but I am still not working! I feel like every day there is a different pain or ache. And i don't want to tell him anymore!
And as much as I love my doctor , they too, look at you like your nuts to say your in severe pain being on your feet for more than 45 mins!! I wish they "got" it. Easy to say six weeks is the healing, well maybe for the scars but not for other things.
Sorry, I had to rant.. I'm not a baby to pain.. I just want a norma life and I'm not sure if its coming at any time soon.
