The Gross Foot

Today was "wash the foot day"


I was able to take the dressing off and "sponge" bath the foot and incision area. I had already seen it at the doctors on Tuesday, but Mr Weenie didn't get to see it.

So off the dressing came and the unveiling began. Mr Weenie said it didn't look to bad, which it doesn't. It's only about a 3 inch or so incision, which surprised me because I was told it usually is 4-5 inches. They used disolveable stitches so they don't even have to be taken out.

We are surprised at how brused my foot is, even all my little piggies are quite brused as well as the top of my foot, and the bottom of my foot. It is still quite swelling, about 1 1/2 times it's normal size. And the bad news is that when I put the neosporan on it I couldn't feel a thing. I am hoping it's just because of the swelling but they did say there was a chance that I could lose feeling in that area because of nerves being cut during the surgery.

I was told I didn't have to use the ace bandage if I didn't want to, so right now I have a really big bandage on it with some neosporan. If that doesn't work I will go back to using the ace with a pad over the incision area.

I was also awesome to be able to shave my whole leg, that was bugging the hell out of me because I could see those unshaven area's and it was grossing me out.

So for the great unveiling, I will put them in the extended entry for those that are grossed out easily. Although it really isn't that bad looking.

First up the top of my foot

And the bottom, it's a little blurry but you can really see the brusing.

I guess I should post a picture of my good foot to show how much the bad foot still is swelling.

To me the bad foot looks like a balloon still.

If the foot pictures could prevent unplanned pregnancies than Mrs. Who and Bitterroot should have visited here much earlier. I'll be crawling home now.
