... Tingling is normal. Make sure to ice your foot every other 30 minutes - ice for 30 minutes, take the ice off for 30 minutes. Keep your foot elevated on two pillows at ALL times, except for going to the bathroom. This is extremely important the first 5-7 days.

... Hi, I just had my surgery (single foot) 4 days ago. The doctor gave me absolutely no post-op instructions, other than come in and see me in 10 days.
