Yesterday I ended up making an unexpected visit to the doctor. My calf and foot were really starting to feel as if there was not enough room in the splint for them to breath properly. I called and they asked how soon I could be there... we got there in about 25 minutes with me still wearing pj's.
I got a look at the surgery sites and it actually grossed out my husband. i wanted to have him take a picture of it with his phone for our youngest. This is the child who loves those really instense medical shows where they show everything. I think that is part of why he is going to be a lawyer so that knows when going to court what the coroners and medical experts are talking about.
Seems the cyst was a fat pocket that popped up on my tendon after the shaving cream hit it. One fixed toe is looking straighter where as the other is not looking anything like it did before surgery.
He changed the bandages, cleaned it up , took x rays and then re splinted it. So next Monday I go in for the cast. I will be in that for the four weeks,. At least it comes off three days before Thanksgiving. YEAH. And after next Monday I can drive again for short distances.
