Re: PTT repair & tenosynovectomy

LadyKanner, it was the most thorough exam I've had ever on my feet. It was what I expected from the other doctors but didn't get. I have a very, very flat left foot. PTTD, big problem with a bunion and some other possible issues including a possible Achilles problem. He said it was serious and I needed surgery sooner rather than later. I was so happy I almost started crying. I had one OS tell me before that I had "a low threshold for pain" implying that the pain was in my head.
I'm going to post a new thread shortly.

This was all yesterday. I just got a call now from his office. They had a last minute cancellation for Monday due to a death in the family, did I want it. I grabbed it. Now I have to frantically get ready. Yikes...and yet so ready to be done with this.

Re: PTT repair & tenosynovectomy

Just get your essentials. Anything else you can pick up (haha, not really, but you can order online!). That's great that you got bumped up! Less time to fret. I think you'll be very glad. Good luck!

Re: PTT repair & tenosynovectomy

A few things to remember to get...... shower chair, shower cast cover, a knee walker (if you choose to use one), if you don't already have pillows to elevate on. Have some ice packs handy.
