Re: The Accessory Navicular strikes back.

I'm on break at work and in so much pain. I keep getting foot cramps and try not to let them notice cause i still need to tell them I'm having surgery. My mom one time 3 days into surgery I called her and said I needed to pee and she was like "courtney go back to bed, it can wait" than like two hours later she was like "you need something?"'...we laugh about it now but at the time it wasn't funny cause it was 1am and I needed to go. Just a funny story

Re: The Accessory Navicular strikes back.

this swelling business is pretty miserable. Any obscure tips on how to control it a little better? This splint is so huge, I can't get a chill through it....

Re: The Accessory Navicular strikes back.

Just keep a big bag of ice around it...i know I couldn't feel the ice but they say it works. Keep it raise really high, I had 3 fluffy pillows.

Re: The Accessory Navicular strikes back.

When I had my splint icing it from there didn't work so well. But I highly recommend icing your knee/back of knee (I'd rotate) and it really helps! Now that I have a cast, I still ice from my knee and I get the most relief.
Good luck, and make sure your super elevated round the clock, It makes all the difference!

Re: The Accessory Navicular strikes back.

woohoo! Out of the splint today and into a hard cast. I got lucky I suppose- no swelling (the doc seemed as super surprised as I was, especially since it felt like I had an elephant foot) and I mastered the stairs outside! And bathing! It's so nice to feel semi-capable of something. Now if I can shake this dehydration and unhappiness from the meds, I will one be happy lil' chickie. I haven't taken any pain meds since yesterday afternoon and got my splint off and a cast on with minimal pain. But they also didn't have to change the position of my foot yet either :/ We'll see what happens in 2 more weeks when I get this cast off and stitches out...
Hope everyone is hanging in there and doing as good as ya can be Sending good vibes to all

Re: The Accessory Navicular strikes back.

Yay! Off pain meds completely, finally slept in the bed last night (I am so sick of this couch) and I slept WELL. I was having a hard time trying to get comfy with this new cast, as I am in gravity equinus position. The magic solution: my rolled yoga mat as a support. worked like a charm without creating any weird pressure points in my cast!
Oh it's the little things.

Hope everyone else is hanging in there

Re: The Accessory Navicular strikes back.

See an orthopedic foot and ankle specialist. Just had accessory navicular surgery, they know their stuff.

Re: The Accessory Navicular strikes back.

If it's been 20 years, that is rediculous. You should have seen an orthopedic specialist, to see what they think. If you want surgery to take it out, then they should have let you have surgery in under three months, even though that is quite silly too.

I have an accessory navicular too, i am quite young and it is proving quite hard. I dont really want surgery, though if me and my parents feel its necessary, we will have it. :I I just hope it doesn't get more worse, as recently i have been experiencing bursts of where it is incredibly painful to walk, so i have to hold on to a stick, and use it like it's my right foot XD sounds weird, but it helps a bit
