I am now in my 5th week of recovery from Lisfranc surgery and have noticed a large amount of muscular atrophy in my right calf and thigh. It is hard to believe that not using my right leg for 4 weeks has already made me lose over 1 1/2 inches in muscle.
On the positive side, my leg jerks (where my leg jumps automatically like it has been electrocuted) has died down. All I am left with now is big toe throbbing and mid foot pain. I am still not taking any OTC’s (extra strength tylenol) and find the pain to be more annoying than anything else
I am looking forward to my 5 week post op appointment on Thursday and am hoping for good news.
