Splint Day: 10 Recovery Day: 10
Days recovery remaining: 80
I mentioned my tumble into the front yard? Well it seems that I cracked the bottom part of my splint when that happened. So after a couple of days of dealing with a distinct "this doesn't feel right" type of feeling and my toes being numb 98%+ of the time I called the doc's office to see what I should do about it. The asked me to come in so they could change it out for me.
So in we went. The giant, hard plaster/ace wrap combo they put on immediately after surgery came off to reveal what the incision looked like:
My first reaction? HOLY SHIT THAT'S A LOT OF STAPLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My second reaction? The incision looks like it's healing pretty well!
My third reaction? HOLY SHIT THAT'S A HUGE INCISION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you so desire you can click on the pic, zoom in a bit and count at least 15 staples. So that scars gonna be nice! And as we all know, chicks dig scars!
Only about 5 days left until the cast. Speaking of which, while I was there for the new splint I was able to peruse cast color swatches and I'm pretty sure I picked out the color. Now to just start looking for a cast cover I can wear in shower.
