Post Surgery Torture

My IV marks..I ended up with 4 of them by the time I went home the next day.

Well,it has been a little over a week since I had surgery.The week was a blur of pain and trying to sleep,which was a torture in itself .I finally went in Wednesday to get the post surgery wrap removed and get the first of two casts put on.

The two incisions where the screws are

My foot looked pretty gruesome,but hopefully it will heal soon.The x-rays say the bones are doing fine and the screws aren't having any issues so far,which is good.

This is where they did most of the work.They removed a cyst,drained fluid,filled the space with bone graft and screwed the ankle and foot together.They also removed some scar tissue and rebuilt the tendon with membrane.

I was able to choose my cast color.They had about 15 colors ranging from plain white to black but in the end I went with bright green.It was festive enough to fit in with the holidays and bright enough to draw attention.I figured maybe,at the least, if I forget and try to step or walk,the flash of bright green color will remind me not to.
