... It is so nice to hear from you again! Yes, he wanted to remove my keloid scar and take out the hardware on the top of my foot and that is what lead me to get a second opinion.

... Cade, I wore two boots for 3 months because of my heels and sleeping was difficult at times. I found that putting pillows around my feet kept the covers propped up enough not to pull my feet to either side. It also kept me from kicking my wife or bring kicked. The other thing I learned to help me sleep was to use up more energy throughout the day with a consistent routine. It... (14 replies)

... Hello, I am 6 days post surgery. Had calcaneal osteotomy and fdl tendon transfer. I was wondering about everyone's experience with getting used to crutches, knee scooter etc. ... (2 replies)
... Yes, it will likely be a CAM walker, or something similar. You might want to ask your surgeon if you can just use that same boot rather than get a new one. (14 replies)
... I am in a splint bandage. One week left I think! I'm very happy about that. I went out today to a store with my parents since I live at home with them still. It felt really good since I feel so stuck I think I'll be in a boot. I'm not positive. Is that like a cam walker boot? My podiatrist had me use a cam boot for a while to see if that helped my PTTD. it didn't. Sadly. I'm... (14 replies)
... Hi Cade...I feel for ya. Been there twice in the last couple of years. It is pretty rough for the first few weeks, but it will get better once you get yourself into a routine and figure out what works for you and what doesn't. Are you having trouble sleeping due to pain, or because you have to lay in positions you aren't used to, or both? Do you have one of those large... (14 replies)

... HI there, I'm almost 4 weeks post surgery (tendon transfer & calcaneal osteotomy, removal of accessory navicular bone), but I have not been in pain since about 5 days after surgery. I think I cut down on the pain meds 4 days past surgery and didn't take anything except for the occasional aleve after my foot wasn't elevated for a longer time. I have been in a cast since 2 weeks... (5 replies)
... k it was how he sewed me up. I had two csections and never had any issue with scar tissue. I am also having issue on the side of my heel where the Double Evans Calcaneal Osteotomy was put. The scar tissue feels like it is stuck to the plate. When I message the scar, it starts to split open in the spot it is stuck. ... (0 replies)
... After PTTD Surgery, I didn't have much luck using the knee scooter in the kitchen. For cooking, preparing meals, I used the wheelchair that I purchased. The counter and stove were somewhat too high, but I managed to get things accomplished in a comfortable position, without straining both feet. I used the knee scooter to get around otherwise in the house and backyard, which... (2 replies)
... Yes, everything you are experiencing is pretty normal from my experience. ..I've had both ankles reconstructed. I think it's quite impressive that you're up and around so much just six days postop! I had the issues with being lightheaded also. I actually passed out at 2 weeks postop from my second surgery... thankfully, I was on the knee scooter, not crutches, and just slid... (2 replies)

... I hope someone can just post back to me and re-assure me that what I am going thru is normal and that I will recover from this and be able to walk without pain. I had a calcaneal osteotomy, ip release and 2-5 fusion in the middle of July, so that is 3 1/2 months ago. My foot still swells up like a balloon if I am unable to elevate it during the day. It feels like it is... (2 replies)
