Bride of Frankenfoot 2

Content warning: post op foot surgery photos below

Today was my post-op appointment with my orthopedic surgeon. When we took off my splint we fund that my incision hadn’t healed yet. We will have to wait another 2 weeks to remove my stitches. When I looked at my foot for the first time I noticed it looked like they had to remove more bone and tissue than with Frankenfoot the first. Additionally, the bruising was much worse and is all around my foot. I suspect the realignment was more severe this time. I’m in a boot and not allowed to bear weight until November 6th, then I’m off to the surgical shoe! The real blow today was learning that I’m healing slowly enough that I must move my monthly Actemra IV back another month. This means I will go 9 weeks without my RA medication that I should be getting every 4 weeks. Hopefully, my RA stays in control while I wait to be back on my feet. I’m working with my rheumatologist to see if there’s something we can do for the inflammation in my hands, shoulders, and feet.

While some of these setbacks really bug me, the surgery will ultimately be worth it. Knowing that my foot is going to be able to hold up to my activity level in the future is what makes this all worth it.
