What you will experience after lisfranc surgery

Through my lisfranc surgery and recovery I have learned what to expect.  Everyone’s journey is different but I thought I would share a few things that are considered “normal” during recovery.

2 weeks post lisfranc surgery

You may experience:
Big toe pain
Big toe numbness
Feeling needle like pain in the bottom of your foot
uncontrolled muscle spasms of your leg
bruising on all areas of your foot
burning, itching, aching of your incision
swelling of your entire foot
ankle pain, swelling and bruising
4th and 5th metatarsal pain and tenderness
discoloration of foot when taking a shower or when it isn’t elevated
diminished sensation on the top of incision
not being able to move toes as freely as before
painful moving toes
different kinds of pain on different days
