Week 6

Week 6 - Wednesday 5 April 2017

Not really much to say beyond the last entry. I've been going to the gym regularly, cycling and walking. The wound has healed nicely. No swelling. No pain in the joint when I'm not walking on it.

The only discomfort I have experienced recently is in my left hip (which I mentioned previously) when laying down. This may be due to my awkward gait when favouring my left foot, which probably put strain on the hip joint. Now that I'm walking more normally it seems to be settling down (possibly bursitis - I'll talk to my doc about it if it persists). Otherwise life is pretty much back to normal.

The toe hurts a little more than it did before the surgery (maybe 2 to 3 on a scale of 10 when walking), but I feel there is slow, but steady improvement. The surgeon said full recovery takes months, so patience is the key.

I'll just make occasional entries now as there really isn't much to write about.
