Re: PTTD Surgery Done - Recovery Begins
Hi, Everybody! I just reread your posts- all ten pages. It is so, so helpful to read back when you were in the stages I am in. It is ten days since surgery for me. I am so much stronger now to move around, although I am still getting burning and cramping in my arch. Some days, I haven't used many pain pills, other days, I am still taking one on a regular basis and two when I go to bed. Next Thursday, I get my splint off and get my cast. I am going to take pictures after reading your posts, and am looking forward to the next phase. Occasionally, I accidentally bump my foot into something, so I will feel more secure in the cast. One question for you... do you have suggestions of how you handle the knee scooter in the bathroom? I have been switching to crutches to maneuver to the toilet, but I wish I could figure out how to do it with just the scooter, especially when I go back to work and have to use the handicapped stall in the girl's bathroom. I am taking six weeks off total. Thanks for all of your sharing, encouragment, and wisdom! It's so inspiring to hear you all walking again and it getting less painful in a fairly quick timeframe after you started PT. Best to all of you!
