Just popping back in that I'm up on the surgeried foot (still hobbling a bit, but walking!) and my second surgery is scheduled for Tuesday, December 1.
Can you just FEEL the enthusiasm? I've been waffling between "yup, do it as soon as possible" and "never, never again". Obviously, "do it now" won. Ugh.
The previous surgery went really well, I have stiffness and muscle atrophy, but no real pain my fixed foot, and I want to be back working out and walking in a few months. This sitting on my butt unable to do anything got very, very old.
So! Off to surgery tomorrow. I'll try to post updates as I can!
