Hey there I just had mallet toe surgery yesterday with the k wire installed, i had local anaestheic with sedative for some reason nobody at the hospital instructed me to do the 'heel' walk which should have been common sense on my part, anyhow I was released 3 hours post op around 4pm and was still numb on the foot and toes and did a little bit of regular walking (oops)and later noticed some bleeding from the stitches area not the wire area. Now I see the blood inside my dressing may have dried onto my stitches. Is there any reason to be alarmed so to speak or is this kinda somewhat normal? I don't want to call the doc unless I have to. Thanks
