Rеhаbіlіtаtіоn

Whаt ѕhоuld I еxресt аftеr trеаtmеnt?

Day 13 – I didn't write anything before because my feet have just been fine. Some pain but not terrible. Foot elevated at all times has surely help reduce any pain. On day #13 I went to the docs to get my #stitches removed. IT HURT. But it was over in less than 5 mins. The doctor told me everything was going well and showed me so exercises I need to do to be able to move my joint as normal. It was horribly painful, I was #crying at the doctors office, I'm supposed to do this on my own 4 times a day. I don't know how I'm going to be able to do it. My toe does move much at all and the big toe and the toe next to it are so separated it's freaky. The doctor said its normal. I'm allowed to move around the house now with my sandal, which is coming off tomorrow for as long as I can resist. I will be able go shower tomorrow as well (I bought a small chair to put in the bath, I sit there while I shower and my foot just sticks out of the bath, all wrapped I. A towel to stop any water from going). Days are brighter now. #sesamoid #sesamoidsurgery #sesamoidectomy #brokenbone #footsurgery #feetsurgery #podiatry
