This video is worth a watch.
I had recovered from my first surgery and I was now preparing myself to go back in. This time it would be a few days stay in the hospital.
A week is a long time. My foot started swelling and I couldn’t figure out why I was having so much neuropathic pain (pins & needles with any position). I was taking pain killers to take off the edge, but it wouldn’t take it away.
Warning: this post contains graphic post-surgery images.
It’s February 2014. In retrospect, I am sooooo glad I postponed this procedure until after Hawaii, which was awesome, by the way.
