jules -- i don't have screws....doc said that he now uses what he called 'dissolving' pins...and that it's essentially like a heavy fishing line.

i start PT next week, bc the big toe on foot 1 is still stiff, and the swelling isn't going away as it should...PT will use electrical currents to break down the swelling. so i'll ask PT about the twitches. didn't occur to me to mention this to the doc (duh!) bc i had been assuming that it was a normal part of the healing process.

kimann, i like the idea of drinking more fluids -- can't hurt, and if it helps, that's terrific! i was really good about elevating, in the beginning, but since my return to work, i only elevate in the evening after dinner, and while i'm sleeping.

thanks for the comments, everyone.
