Lisfranc 4/5/2013

Posted 05-03-2013 at 04:16 PM by mangzilla

Just thought I'd quickly update on what its like without the hardware in my foot.

I've only been back in a shoe for 2 days, but instantly it feels a lot nicer than walking around whilst the hardware was still in my foot. I am able to walk much more casually without limping and there is no awkwardness or slight pain in my foot.

I am hoping this isn't just a mental thing I have created in my own head because I feel that I can focus less on it now, but at this point its...

My last update in January, I seen my doctor on the 18/01/2013 and he advised me to get out of the boot and start trying to walk as normal (with the screws still in my foot) and I have been doing so since. I have found some shoes that seem to work really well with my foot and also walking bare foot seems to be the most comfortable for me. My doctor suggested a walking or running shoe with strong arch support, but I have very flat feet as it is and I have found a low cut canvas shoe that is the most...

Lisfranc UPDATE 15/01/2013

Posted 01-14-2013 at 02:57 PM by mangzilla

So this week marks 6 weeks since my cast was removed and I have a check up at the end of this week. I believe they are going to book in when my screws will be removed very soon which is exciting!

My Lisfranc Injury/Story

Posted 11-15-2012 at 12:12 AM by mangzilla
Updated 12-09-2012 at 06:20 PM by mangzilla

Hello everyone,

I stumbled across this board whilst trying to find other peoples stories on recovery from Lisfranc Injuries. I must admit, after reading some other stories I feel like I have lost a little hope in my recovery lol. But none the less, I am going to blog my story (with pictures!) for anyone else seeking the same information I was seeking.

At the current time I am 3 weeks post op, and 6-7 weeks from my original injury date. But starting from the start here...
