It’s been a long time coming, I had my reconstructive foot surgery on Friday October 3rd. I had no idea my left foot was as bad as it was. The orthopedic surgeon had to restructure my whole foot and Ankle, defuse some bones in the ankle adding screws and plates and the long screws in the heel of my foot because the arthritis had taken up all the cartilage in my heel and entire foot. The surgery went well without complications I’ve been home since Saturday I stay one night in the hospital due to low blood pressure and me not coming out from under the anesthesia soon enough. My family has been a huge help in my home care, the hospital reps are calling checking in on me as well as the doctors office and the anesthesiologist.  I was sent home with a pain pump and today was the last day for my use. It really kept me pain free for the 3 days.
My doctor was amazing the best in her field. She made absolutely sure I had everything I needed for my home recovery which will be a total of 4~5 months of no weight bearing on my foot. I get around on a knee scooter which is cool. I’m also waiting on the compression machine that’s suppose to be here today to keep my foot cool and free from blood clots I also give my self injections for not clotting as well. So I should began physical therapy around January. It’s a long road for me but it’s all good.
