7 Weeks - Peroneal Surgery Recovery

Friday, April 01, 2016

I have one more week before I will be allowed to try to walk on it. I have been practicing standing on it as instructed. I can tell you that in one week I will not be able to walk on it. I will be hobbling on crutches at best and not very far at that.

When I try to put weight on that foot the surge of excruciating nerve pain is unbearable.

The good news is that I have been cleared to ride my recumbent bike again!!!!! It is not painful to do that, so that is VERY good news. I'm super stoked.

Slow and steady wins the race. I'm trying to be patient...

    Glad that you are able to be on your bike again without any pain. Hope it continues to heal so you can stand/walk with no pain soon.

    I wish you the best with the nerve pain. I'm praying for you.

    Don't know if this would help...
    In Tai Chi we do a lot of consciously shifting our weight from one foot to the other, slowly.
    Maybe you could stand with all your weight on the non-operated foot and the operated one just toughing the floor, but no weight on it.
    Then gradually put the slightest amount of your weight on the operated foot, so you are standing maybe 95/5%.
    Go back to all your weight on the non-operated foot.
    Maybe you can work up to 90/10%, etc.
    When you get to 50/50, you will be standing normally.
    When you can shift your weight all the way over and back, you will be able to walk.

    I know earlier you had medication to help with the nerve pain. Do ice or heat or massaging it or and topical things or patches help?
