I am not 1 week post op. I saw so much scary information regarding this surgery, I am fortunate to have some positive news, at least so far. :-)

So I haven't posted in a couple weeks. A lot has gone on. I got the cast off, stitches out, and am now in a boot. The doc told me to take the boot off 5-10 times a day and start doing movement, like ankle rolls, moving left to right, etc. It is really nice to be able to move, there is a little pain here and there but nothing major. The pain pills are still only taken sporadically. Taking an actual shower was awesome, didn't have to worry about getting a cast wet, I could just go in the shower. The scars are pretty gross looking and my 5 year old makes sure to tell me how gross they look :-)

All in all, everything is progressing well. My next appointment is in 3 weeks and then I can start partial weight bearing. I'm really looking forward to that.
