Glad to hear that everything is healing well. I'm sure you are looking forward to finally getting out of the cast and being able to get rid of some of that dead and oh so itchy skin.

Looking forward to getting cast #2 off on Tuesday. Hope it's healed enough that I won't need a cam boot either. I miss driving! Especially as my husband has been in hospital for 5 weeks after a bowel obstruction led to emergency surgery & the discovery he has a malrotation & Ladd's bands. He has an ileostomy & hasn't been responding well after the surgery. I've had to take another 6 weeks off work to deal with it & keep him company. Luckily his parents live close by & have been taking me & our sons every day. My life is so much fun! Anyhow, I hope I'll be back behind the wheel in a few days so I can have my independence back.

Shiny new foot! Just scrubbed it for about an hour to get rid of 12 weeks' worth of dead skin, yuk. The site has fused perfectly. I have a lot of nerve issues post surgery but that's always been the case with me.

It's very difficult to walk on, not that I usually walk much anyway, but even with crutches I'm finding it very hard and the swelling is pretty bad, although I know that can persist for months. Still, in the end I'm delighted to say the arthritis pain is gone from that joint now. Only 200+ more to go LOL

5 months post surgery & I'm really happy with how things are going. I still have persistent swelling so I can't fit into my favourite boots. The nerve injury persists but as I also have CRPS I'm not surprised. At least my feet match in their crappy nerves now! It means my gait, when I bother walking now, is evenly hobbled now LOL. Overall I'm calling this one a success 😁

Default New member with foot fusion

Hello Maria
Approx 15 years ago had my left foot rolled and crushed in auto / pedestrian (I was the pedestrian) slow motion accident, could be called a freak.
A disturbance caused both the driver and myself to look rather than looking to see what was about to happen. Driver did look up in time unfortunately for me, and hit his brakes only to slide over and stop on my rolled foot.
Anyway was fortunately close to my VA hospital, which had students from the surgery dept at UCLA and most important the dept head surgeon.
It took a year and two surgeries for him to put my foot back together, and today its better than my right foot, with minor considerations.

Well the fusion that I'm referring to was the second surgery where they took a piece of bone out of my knee (did not want a pig cadaver) and put it in a major joint with two screws, that I still have.
Most of the other minor joints fused themselves, along with a broken bone and that toe is a bit shorter today.

That guy was a genius and at the end gave him a big hug, which for him a bit embarising, however he got my point. Today am sure would have a limp and pain with another less skilled surgeon.

Advise from others in my ward with much worse bone corrections, go very slow and let yourself heal before going to the next step.
