Lindsey Foot Surgery

Geez, sorry for the unannounced blogging hiatus! Last Wednesday I had bunion surgery where they re-aligned the big-toe joint in my foot by breaking the first metatarsal bone, inserting a wedge of fake bone, and securing the break spot with a plate and 4 screws. The surgery went well, but the past week has been…interesting. The recovery has definitely been more difficult than I expected, with intense pain and intense nausea from the anesthesia & pain meds. And I’m getting kind of tired of lying flat on  my back with my foot propped high up in the air! Bleh.

Hopefully, though, I’ll be getting back to posting more regularly! I’ve got lots of neato things to show you. 🙂

EDIT: I had the same surgery done — bunionectomy with osteotomy, with a plate and 4 screws inserted — on the other foot on Feb 23, 2010. Here’s an update from that surgery.
