Successful Surgery (So Far)

Pre-Surgery Foot

Well, I made it through the surgery okay.

I haven’t taken any of the “heavy duty” pain killers today, so I’m feeling fairly lucid. I’m really tired, though. I wasn’t expecting that.

I’m reluctant to say it was 100% successful, because it’s early days. The bandages aren’t even off yet! And stuff hurts. But I’m still feeling hopeful.

Here’s what my foot looks like right about now:

Post-Surgery Foot

I’ve got this nifty boot which pumps ice-cold water around my foot and compresses at the same time. It’s supposed to keep the swelling down. I think it’s working, but there’s a severe dearth of ice in the house.

Post-Surgery Foot

I see the doctor tomorrow and we unwrap the bandages. With luck: no infection. I’ll keep you posted.
