Cool Positive news from me!!

As many of you will remember, I had a triple fusion and big toe osteotomy back in Oct 2010. Wound healing problems and further debridement surgery followed. Well, today the scab fell off my wound and underneath is beautiful healthy intact skin! I'm so happy, I can't tell you. I emailed my surgeon to ask if it was ok to get back to the swimming pool and he said YES!!! So, I now have a whole six weeks before my next surgery on Sept. 27th. I'll get my life back, even if it's just for a few weeks.

Re: Positive news from me!!

Yay for scabs falling off!!

What a long time!

Although my story doesn't compare to yours - I finally lost the last part of my scab today - just 8 weeks after surgery for Hallux Limitus Rigidus -

Happy to hear all is going well!

Re: Positive news from me!!

Thankyou Grace. Hope all goes well for you too. I went for a swim and managed 10 lengths. Weird feeling after all this time and I felt very anxious walking barefoot around the pool. Gonna try and get some little non-slip pool shoes.
