Re: Transition to boot & PWB

[QUOTE=augirl423;4986730]So we are completely skipping PWB and going to full. This makes me nervous, but the pain isn't horrible. It was really weird feeling at first - like pins & needles on the bottom of my foot, but that's better now. I am still using my crutches to help me out some. I am really impressed with how well my incision has healed since my last appointment. I came home & took a great bath, shaved & exfoliated my leg - felt SO good! Second surgery will likely be July 11th or close to that.[/QUOTE]

Wow, be careful going to FWB so quickly...and definitely keep the crutches handy....the heel/bottom of foot was hard for me too at first. I'm glad your incisions is healing. I had the boot on after my surgery and it rubbed in the incision - they finally put me in something else, but it took that part of the incision longer to heal! And I know what you mean about the first bath! Amazing, huh?
