I had posted the other day that I had and I ankle stabilization surgery five weeks ago today actually and for some reason the swelling which seems to only be on the top of my foot which I find very strange just will not subside it does not get better and all it has been exactly the same since day one doctor has not given me any medications or further instructions just noting that it can take some time for the swelling to decrease I'm just having a hard time excepting the fact that the swelling is on the top of my foot and that it has not improved at all I'm hoping and praying that someone else has had this experience I feel like I'm going out of my mind I don't know where else to turn. I really need to get back to my life I I can't function in the postop shoe it just is so uncomfortable not to mention there's a foot and a half of snow outside and it's 5° LOL. Does anyone have any ideas on what I might be able to put on my foot? Also I mentioned as well that At my check up last week my doctor said that the wound had opened up again so he put some new butterfly stitches on took off the old ones and pulled off the scab. Also told me that I could no longer get it wet again so now I'm back to no showers this is totally not what I had expected I really feel like it's never going to get better like this was a mistake it's the holiday season and I am completely depressed I hate being dependent on other people has anyone offered from either one of these issues that can offer maybe some additional tricks that can help me get over this hump? I really am at my wits end I do see the doctor tomorrow and if there's anything additional I should be suggesting maybe that anyone else may have tried please let me know so I can bring it out during the visit tomorrow thank you very much for reading and I have a good night
