Well I finally got two of the four neuromas removed (one in each foot)!! Next surgery will be January the 13th. I am recovering quickly with minimal swelling. The key apparently is to really not move at all for the first three days and to ice and elevate.
Once past the extremely crucial three day no movement period (can’t stress no movement enough), it’s just a matter of pain management and minimal movement. I got off pain killers after twenty four hours and am just taking Tylenol on a PRN basis.
I can get around OK but am still really staying pretty sedentary. I will have my stitches taken out on Monday the 28th and return to work Tuesday the 29th.
I will most likely where Crocs and keep a portable stool with me so I can sit down when needed. I will also make sure to elevate my feet a few times a day.
So was it a success you might ask…still don’t know have to wait for all the pain of the surgery to die down first.
I’ll keep you posted!!
