Foot surgery went well!

Posted: March 6, 2011 in foot surgery

On February 24th I had foot surgery at York Hospital. Everything went well. I have cast on my right foot from below my knee to my toes. The doctor said that I cannot put weight on the foot for 5 weeks and then partial weight on it for 3 weeks. Physical therapy follows that.

I think that they should give pre-surgery instructions about how you will be getting around and that you should be building up your upper body strength. I have no upper body strength and cannot use the crutches or walker. Guess I am not a good hopper ;-).

I know this is a temporary situation and will pass. Can’t wait until I can put weight on my foot and can drive!
