dr appt after 8th surgery

so far-knock on wood, my 1st appt with my dr turned out good. this surgery was for reverse akins procedure. it has been 2 weeks and the x rays look fine and the stitches came out. it is still very painful. since this is my right foot, the illinois law states that i can in no way drive with anything, but a shoe on my right foot. i think i have a gym shoe saved from the last surgery so i can drive with that. i then have to put on my surgical shoe after i am done driving. i will have to take out the insert from the gym shoe and have it very loosley tied. i am so far so greatfull that possibly this surgery worked. i go back in 2 weeks and i so hope the healing process is still working. i am truely scared. please say a prayer for me so i dont have to go thru a 9th surgery. i know you all dont know my history, but anything would be appreciated! thanks, debbie

Re: dr appt after 8th surgery

thanks. i dont want another fusion so i am doing everything possible to let it heal. i know it takes such a long time for the healing process and for the swelling to go down.

Re: dr appt after 8th surgery

Deb, My prayers are with you. I know a little about your history from 3 years ago. You hung in there with me and my shoulder recoveries. You were going thru recovery on your foot. You were great support and inspiration for me. Keep believing this is the last surgery. We are all here with you. Good news so far.

Re: dr appt after 8th surgery

Deb,

My prayers are also with you! I am somewhat familiar with your story too. I remember you being on here with me off and on for the last couple of years.

I hope this is it for you! I have had 10 surgeries over the last 9 years - 7 of them in the last 3. I can honestly say - I understand how you feel.

I'll keep praying for this to be it for you!

Please keep us posted!
