I’m starting to feel a lot better. Today is day 10 post op and my pain is finally starting to die down and be a tolerable amount where I don’t need my pain meds anymore. HALLELUJAH!
My days consist of literally staying in bed all day and watching movies on my laptop, watching tv, or just sleeping. I only get up from bed to go to the bathroom. Then I come back to my bed and just relax. That’s the best thing I can do for myself and my healing foot is to just relax. Even the littlest movement will start to cause me pain, so it’s best to just stay still and rest.
I did take photos of my foot yesterday and it looks kinda gross cause of the antibiotic cream my doctor put over my incision. The cream is white so over my incision and over my stitches and over some blood, it looks grossly awesome.
You can see better in these photos what I was talking about in my previous post where the pain I was feeling felt like my incision was ripping apart and it actually was. At the top how there’s ugly dried blood on the bandage, that’s coming from the very first stitch. My skin was ripping apart right there from the swelling and it still leaks foot juices sometimes.
Next week I go back to the doctor for some xrays and to get my stitches removed, so I’m excited for that. It’s only been ten days since I’ve had my surgery but it seriously feels like I’ve been this way for 3 weeks, which is a sucky feeling. But I feel like I am healing very very fast, just like last time.
I don’t have much to say about my foot so I guess I’ll just end it here x)
Have a great day, everyone(:
