Seeing the surgeon for xray & removal of stitches tomorrow, and getting my plastercast replaced with a fibreglass one. So far still no pain at all from either the arthritis, the incision sites or the bone graft *except* some spiky nerve pain on top of my foot, around the middle toe. Even my hefty Lyrica dose isn't touching it. Oh well! Not on anything apart from my usual regime, with the addition of daily blood thinner injections that I'm really enjoying (bit of a needle fetish haha). Very very pleased with the results thus far.

Happy to report it's progressing well. Fibreglass cast is on & back to see the surgeon in 6 weeks. Disappointed they only had pink or white fibreglass though 😖

Looks like you still have some swelling there. It is good to hear that you are doing well and off to the next cast. Are they planning on putting you into a boot in the next 4-6 weeks?

Lots of swelling & bruising, but then I'm on blood thinners. I'm in this cast for 6 weeks then xrays & either another cast or boot for the last 4 weeks. I don't walk anyway so it's no biggie either way 😛

Your cast is just fabulous! I'm so glad to hear you are having so little pain and everything is going so well. That spiky nerve pain will hopefully resolve as your swelling goes down. Nerves hate swelling.

Thanks for the update and don't forget to keep elevating!
