15 weeks post lisfranc surgery

Stairs at last!!!!
 
 
At 15 weeks post lisfranc surgery, I can go downstairs without any banister support, if I take it slowly and carefully.  My physical therapist has had me practicing with different step heights during my PT sessions and it has paid off!
 
(note how hard my recovering foot’s toes have to work in order to maintain balance.  I guess there was a reason to the marble exercises after all!!  ;0)
 
 
My Physical therapist told me most of a person’s balance is through the big toe which is the last thing to heal after lisfranc surgery repair.

Below shows a fairly good view of what my lisfranc surgery scar looks like 15 weeks after surgery.
The scar still itches often and the whole top of my foot is tender to the touch. The good news it the top of my foot has stopped having the constant tingling sensation that had become very annoying, especially at night.

I still do not have full sensation in my big toe but I can feel tingling and sharp twinges of pain as the nerves continue to heal. My big toe is very sore to the touch.

I keep hoping the scar will continue to fade, but that has become far less important to me as the days roll by.
