    8 weeks post pttd surgery

    Hey I really hope I get good feedback because I have been going through it with this recovery. I have not been able to sleep well at all. My foot feels very weird at night and I've tried elevating it and also just letting it lay on the bed both weren't comfortable. Some nights it's this tingly feeling and others it's just dull and stiff. I'm pretty sure I've developed insomnia because it's hard to stay asleep for over two hours. I had my first physical therapy session today and we just did exercises, measurements, and developed an at home plan. I was really hoping she'd massage my foot or something to give me some sort of relief but maybe that comes further down the road idk. Has anyone else had similar experiences or can give me some advice to help recover better? I am suppose to start weight bearing with my air cast boot too.

    How is your PT going now? I just had my first PT session today. The same thing was done for me. I was told that massage would come with next appointments.
    I still swelled up with what little was done.
