I went to go get my 2nd bandage change & stitches removed. They tugged on the pin to see if it was ready to come out yet. It becomes very loose when it is ready, and mine was a little loose. So another week with the pin, but the sutures came out. Have to go without bearing weight on my foot for another week until the pin comes out. Since the crutches started really irritating my sides, Jason went out during lunch last Wednesday and came back with a knee scooter. I prop my knee up on the scooter and push it around with my good leg. It is very embarrassing because everybody sees me on it and laughs along with questioning the usage. All my co-workers want to "pimp my ride". I don't care that much though because it is way more comfortable to use than the crutches! I'll have to post a picture of me on the scooter so you can see it. Pain is better, but I can feel the pin constantly tugging and moving, which is apparently a good sign meaning the bone is healing and trying to push the pin out. If I don't keep my foot elevated enough during the day, my leg & foot swell some. Dr. Wilson is a very good podiatrist if anyone else is looking at doing this surgery. After the pin comes out hopefully next Friday, I can start bearing weight on my foot again and will only have bandages on for one more week after that (since there will be a hole in my foot from where the pin once was). I still have some numbness in my big toe, which will most likely come back within a few months.
I can't wait to wash the yes off my foot! Taking stitches out, which was a little painful on some
