Last Post Surgery Dr. Visit

Yes! Today was my last post surgery visit with my doctor. I had a spike of bone form on top of the joint of my big toe that was causing deterioration of the cartilage. The whole joint had to be cut and reshaped in surgery. My Doctor also took a section out of the main bone in my big toe, shortening it, so that this problem wouldn’t happen again. It was a long healing process with metal rods sticking out of my toe, having to wear a boot for almost two months, working through stretches and now it’s finally feeling a bit more normal. She says she’s very impressed with progress on my motion and that I should be able to do anything I want on it, even play sports! It will be swollen and hurt a while longer until it is fully healed and back to normal, but I’m out of the woods!

Thank you to everyone who’s been praying for healing and patients while I work through the pain. Here’s photos of the pre and post surgery X-Rays as well as one showing the rods that held the bone together. P.S. Let me know if you want to see pics of rods and stitches and scars ;]
