Bunionectomy: Sweet Relief

Today is day 18 post op, and I went to the doctor for some xrays and to get my stitches removed. After telling my doctor about my fall the other day, she looked at my xrays, told me that everything looked fine, however the screws in my foot did move a little bit out of place. She says it shouldn’t effect the overall healing of my foot, but there is a lot of bruising and swelling going on from it. She says I was lucky that my bones didn’t split. I was pretty relieved to know I didn’t damage my foot too bad.

After that, she removed my stitches, put more of that white antibiotic cream over my incision, which she said looked really good, then put new dressings over my foot.

And that was pretty much it. I didn’t get to take photos of my foot from today cause things moved pretty fast and I wasn’t really thinking about it. I was just glad my foot was alright. Maybe I’ll take photos in a few days just to record the progress.

My next appointment is in 4 weeks on March 5th, which will be 6 weeks post op, and 6 weeks means I can start walking again. Four weeks is going to feel like forever though. These last two weeks have felt like a month and it’s sucked, so four weeks, ugh. I seriously have little to no patience.
