8 Days post op followup and pix – safe

Today is my follow up appointment for my bunionectomy! Everything went wonderfully, as far as I know. I was on crutches for about 5 days, then I started hobbling around, then I incorporated crutches in a bit more because I thought I screwed up by walking too much. I didn’t take much percocet, just the first 2 days. Then I switched to Aleve.

I live tweeted the whole thing, presuregery, all the way into the OR, and then post surgery. I do have pictures from during the surgery that Dr. Locke took that I will post with a disclaimer in a separate post. You can see the screws and plates in my foot! They are purple and match most of my wardrobe.

I was out under MAC anesthesia and as far as I know, I didn’t wake up during the procedure. The IV was probably the worst part, and my arm was in a ton of pain just before the anesthesia kicked in. All I remember was crying from the pain and then being knocked out and waking up after the surgery.

I am going in for my follow up where they will unwrap my soft cast and see what’s going on underneath. Should be interesting!
