After recovering from lisfranc surgery for 27 weeks, my husband and I took a quick trip to Florida before I head back into surgery tomorrow.
I was not able to walk barefoot on the beach, and sandals were still uncomfortable, but that didn't stop me from being able to enjoy the feeling of sand on my toes!
|27 weeks after lisfranc surgery|
I decided to be really adventuresome and try walking through Sea World. We took it slow, and I was able to manage walking around the entire park and enjoy several of the shows!
After visiting Sea World, I even managed to walk through the airport to catch our plane. When we got home last night, all it took to be pain free was a little ice, elevation and tylenol!!
Tomorrow I am having the hardware removed from my foot. I am not at all nervous about the surgery itself, but am apprehensive about the recovery. I have been assured by both my surgeon and his nurses that recovery will be much easier this time, but I still wonder how long it will take to recover to the exact point I am now. I have worked hard to regain almost normal walking and I dread going backward.
I know, though, for a positive long term outcome, hardware removal is necessary.
