Re: Elevation questions post PTTD surgery

Ginger62,
Hi! How are you doing with your recovery? How long did it take you to be able to be weight bearing? My DR says 6 -8 weeks, but I have heard others say on here it has taken longer. I finally have a surgery date for Oct 26th....just want to get it over with! I am anxious for the healing to begin! So tired of getting home from work and not being able to do anything because of pain & swelling. Did you have lots of pain before your surgery? I am thinking the post op pain can't be worse than my worst days pre op....hoping anyways! My husband says he will take the day of surgery off (how nice, right!) Did you need someone there to help you or were you ok, alone after surgery that first week?.....curious & anxious......bonnie
