Hi everyone, How many people find this sight while looking for information. I had foot surgery on my right foot on 8/16 non weight bearing for now and guess what ?! I lost my balance and stepped down. Does that mean these last 10 days were for nothing. I go to the doctors monday morn for xrays but my stomach is in a knot right now. Has this happened to anyone else ?
Yes, this did happen to me about three days after having flat foot reconstruction. I was only in a splint at the time due to swelling. Luckily, the screws and bone staple held the bones that were broken during the surgery into place. It sure did hurt alot when it happend though!! Mine happend on a Friday so I didn't get in to the doctor until Monday morning so I know the knot in the stomach feeling. Hang in there and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!
The day after my surgery I was really nauseous and threw up rather violently (gross, I know) and it resulted in my jamming my foot into the ground HARD. then a day or two later my crutches slipped on water and I came down on it again, HARD. It was perfectly fine, even though each time hurt terribly. It should be fine, but you'll know for sure soon!
More likely then not everything will be ok but it is good that you are going in for x-rays. I came down hard more than once post op and was fine. The doctor said that the splint and cast are there to protect the foot and usually do a great job in doing that.
