Wow! I have a screw holding my foot together! Here's the picture the surgeon took after the operation ended. Wheee!
The arrow points to the break.
I have staples holding the skin together on the outside. Those will be removed in a couple of weeks. The screw may need to be removed as well once healing is complete.
It looks like the only part that should hurt is my pinkie toe, but the pain is in the foot part, not the toe part and since the ligament under the break was also damaged, the pain spreads from one side of the foot to the other (where the ligament goes). By far, the left side of my foot hurts worse, but the whole thing isn't a walk in the park. (har)
It was recommended to put cabbage on my foot, but that can't happen since I have the wound covered with sterile dressing and the boot. The boot doesn't come off until the doc removes the staples. Sooooo much fun showering!
Anyway, here's a pic of my foot. Pics of me pre and post-op to come.
