Three days down, pain is significantly lower, mainly aches and pains that I would expect at this point in recovery. Thank heavens. I am swapping oxy and tylenol every 4 hours, or 6 each every 24 hours.
Every now and then, I do get significant neurological pain, which is pretty terrible but it doesn't last long.
I have relocated to a different room in the house for a change in scenery! I am starting to understand why people count down to the day their casts come off. :-)
PesCav, I went right into the boot too. Never having had a cast I don't think you'll hate it as much as everyone else does. It's probably adjustable on both sides and you can take it off to shower. That is absolutely the best part. Sleeping is a little awkward but I got used to it. Wait til you see you scars when they take the splint off! Take pictures if you can. Mine are almost invisible by now...I used vitamin E oil after every shower. Can't do that with a cast!

I slept in it for 6 weeks. It sucked at first. It's just so important to keep everything immobilized.
Why do you hate the Ravens? Did you want the Patriots in it AGAIN? I think the Harbaugh Bowl will be so fun!
I don't want the ravens in anything. I've never been a fan of them. I think Suggs and Lewis are the biggest jerks. Sugg annoys me more though cause he has a record of beating his girlfriend. Though Lewis got lucky and pleaed down his murder charge...I read those court docs and he knows too much for someone who claims not to be involed. I just think the ravens need to choose better people for there team. I wouldn't want my brother looking up to ethier of those guys.
I like the patriots and the steelers but the steelers needed the break of not being in the superbowl. I know a lot of people want there teams in. I wanted my team to not make it so they could get healthy.
So I guess this year I have to root for the niners but my little brother wants a puppy bowl party. So we will do that
How did you not get a scar? And yeah my doctor said I could sleep without it. I wonder if it will be different for my upcoming surgery.
Agree on the Ravens have a couple of really bad eggs. Lewis must have known. I lived in Dallas before I moved back to NC. The same weekend they lost to Carolina in the playoffs in '96. Dallas ain't goin' nowhere soon.
I had Frankenstein scars. They were big and ugly. I just really tried to take care of them every day. I see you're in MD? I went to Mercy.
I think he knew and was a part of it. But that's something he has to live with..and I think all the times he brings up god just makes me think he's doing it for show but that's just me. I mean I've met ray rice and he's a sweet guy. He's funny and wasn't a jerk. So they have some good ones too. I just think the bad outweighs the good for now.
I am in md but I don't go to mercy. I am at union memorial.
Well, if you get a boot pretty quickly after surgery and can remove it to shower, I really think it helps a lot to keep the scars "oiled up". Massage them a little too when you can. your foot will be less sensitive too if you're in a boot. Boot sucks, but there are some advantages.
Go Niners! talk your dad into a scooter if you're gonna be down for a while. So much easier, but you're pretty young, right? So crutches might not be too bad. They are kind of hard for the older folks.
