Splint Day: 2, Recovery Day: 2
The nerve block is about 90% gone - just a small numb area behind my knee - and I'm able to wiggle my toes now. So that's a good thing, the bad thing? The discomfort has started to kick in. Discomfort. Not pain. Maybe that's due to the percocet? Probably. But it's not nearly as bad as I was anticipating.
Still trying to get used to navigating around the house with the splint. The knee walker is much, much easier than crutches so that helps but it's still a challenge.
I'm taking my aspirin like I'm supposed to be, icing (not really sure just how effective icing my popliteal space is but still following instructions), and I'm a fixture on the couch. Twelve more days until the cast.
On the fun side, the Star Wars Blu-ray marathon has begun!
