i am having surgery tomorrow to fix hallux varus. this is a reverse akin procedure. it will take 3 months for recovery. i will have to wear a surgical shoe and walk on my heel or use crutches. the stitches come out about 10 days later and hopefully i will be able to walk flat. i cant believe this is happening again. all i am doing is crying. i am worried it wont heal right, i will gain weight and my tennis stops. this is my right foot and when i am ready to drive, i dont see how that will happen. it is against the law to drive with any type of gear on the right foot. the dr sent a form for a handicapped sticker. if any of you remember me, please say a prayer because i am really scared. thanks, debbie
Hey Deb, I was with you on the 7th surgery. I remember you very well. You were very kind and helpful for me back then and we spent alot of time posting. I can't believe you have to do it again. Let's cross our fingers, say a loud prayer that this is the final surgury for you. Only good thoughts are coming your way!!!!!!!! You hang in there and when you can post so we can be here for you. Big Big Hugs!!
Debbie, I will say a prayer for you. You will make it; you have gone thru so much that was far worst. The fusion - I may have to do this and I am really scared. I cry everyday as well. You are not alone. Good luck. Keep posting.
today i am in a lot of pain so i am taking the pain meds. i decided to put on my walking boot instead of the surgical shoe because it makes my foot feel more secure. thanks for responding-it makes me feel so good. i hope none of you have to go thru any type of surgery again.i cant believe this happened again. i am trying to have positive thoughts, but it is hard.
