I had foot surgery on December 14th to remove the bunion on my right foot, which has been giving me some issues the last couple of years. I also had a peanut sized growth on my nerve that was removed at the same time.
My surgeon said I could be back in a shoe in 2 weeks. And he was right. But I still can't walk normal, or put pressure on my big toe, which isn't good. I went back in last week, to find out that I'm allergic to the tape he used when he removed my stitches. It caused a small infection, which he removed. He gave me some stuff called gentian violet. It's purple. Dark purple. I paint my foot with it and its supposed to heal me up.
I think it's working-I'm hoping to be walking normal in the next couple of weeks. And I'm really hoping to be back to work at the beginning of February. Which brings me to my biggest dilemma--my need for a new babysitter...stay tuned for updates on this crazy journey!
