Hi there,

I am approaching 8 weeks out from ORIF surgery for a broken fibula and torn tendons. My Dr called my injury "ballerina toes" ugh. Anyways, I just started partial weight bearing this week. Lots of swelling as to be expected however I have not regained feeling in my last 3 toes of my left foot since before surgery. My Dr has prescribed a transdermal compound nerve cream to rub on my foot. Has anyone had any luck with this? Now if only I could rub something on this depression lol. ....

    My doc gave prescribed diclofenac sodium topical gel. It's supposed to take the place of ibuprofen, but is messy, smelly, and stings. It's for inflamation.

    I like your sense of humor and I have to say, I read someone here got a prescription for topical cannabis. I say yes! My doc gave prescribed diclofenac sodium topical gel. It's supposed to take the place of ibuprofen, but is messy, smelly, and stings. It's for inflammation.
