I am now 13 weeks post lisfranc surgery and looking back, I have made huge progress!
I need to ice only 1 – 2 times per day now.
I am navigating fairly well around our house with sneakers on and am only dependent upon my cane for longer distances within our home.
I walk up our stairs effortlessly
I am starting to learn to walk down our stairs normally, although this is much more difficult for me and I can only do this with partial weight bearing. (Leaning on my cane and the banister.)
When outside of our house, I still used my boot and a cane.
My pain level is zero when walking in my boot and 2-3 when walking in a sneaker.
I rarely have to elevate when at a restaurant or church
My nighttime cramping in my leg and foot have stopped.
I sleep all night pain free. In fact, I cannot remember the last time I took extra strength tylenol!!
|13 weeks following lisranc surgery my recovering foot is very similar to my “normal” foot now!|
|13 weeks following lisfranc surgery. Not much swelling anymore|
|13 weeks following lisfranc surgery, right side view. My ankle is almost normal|
|13 weeks following lisfranc sugary, left side view. At this angle, my scar is not very noticeable|
There is hope for pain free walking at the end of this journey!
