I was pretty apprehensive when the nurse was cutting off all of the bandages from my foot. I figured I would see a big stubby grotesque club foot.
Meh... didn't turn out too bad.
Olivia had a different feeling when I pulled the bandages off when I got home.
Surprisingly enough my foot had very little swelling.
And the underside...
I finally got to ask some questions about the surgery. I started to really worry that I had my foot unnecessarily cut open extending this whole process by a lot. The joint was fine so was there some other way of fixing the instability without creating a creepy toe?
He said an MRI wouldn't have shown us what was going on in there and he was totally floored when he opened the joint that there was not a flap of cartilage hanging loose in there. My creepy toe made a liar out of him in the operating room.
My last question was about the tendon itself... Is it more like spaghetti or linguine?
