Debbie Mc~ How great to see your post! I know you are anxious to get back to work , but don't overdo it! :nono:
Your foot swelling caught my attention. I have been having lower back, leg and knee pain . It is getting worse. Trying to get up from the blessed squatting position is a killer. I am just wondering if this is spine related as well. Why not? I might as well fall all the way apart. [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dizzy.gif[/img]
Ok, what that has to do with your foot, I don't know. I have the attention span of a 2 year old and the humor to match.
Anyway~ rest and take care of you~

~hugs~

Debbie Mc...were we seperated at birth? You should see the size of my legs, feet, ankles, they are so swollen. I am really concerned by all this because it started with the pain and now there is alot of swelling and tingling in my toes. Not sure if I should call my doc or wait it out a few days.

I guess different surgeons do different things. Maybe that is why the collar for so long, because of no hardware. I don't know, my NS drives me batty.

Your airport story was the funniest thing I ever heard!...*LOL* I can almost picture the faces of others as you were being "quacked" all over the place. Too funny!!!

I don't know about you, but I am tired of taking one step forward and two steps back in this damn recovery!

Keep me posted on how you are doing.
