The toe was completely numb,and it was as if he was working on something detached from me.A totally surreal experience .I never felt a thing.The surgeon turned and saw me looking,and asked if I was ok. I said yes,and he laughed and said it was a first for him to see someone watch what he was doing to them.I had to stop myself from asking for the toe to put in a bottle of liquor. lol It only took 25 minuted to do it. I wonder if any out there ever went through a similar experience?
I'm glad you doing well, Ed.

Thanks Eileen; It's still pretty sensitive and tender.I have to have it dressed every two days for a couple of weeks.

cogs; That has turned out to be bit of a problem.I have been walking since I had it done about 10 days ago.Today I was at the wound clinic to have it dressed,and this gorgeous young nurse.gave me s#it because the walking has burst about five stitches at the tip of the incision,and has been leaking,and I couldn't see it through the dressing.Anyhow I have strict orders to stay off of it.Now I have the wife on my ass.(not in a good way) I see the surgeon on Thursday,and I am just hoping it will be dried by then.I'll keep you posted.

I know how you feel Ed. When I was recovering (in hospital) after major surgery I was told to stay in bed. The physiotherapists came to discuss my recovery and being bigheaded I told them that I had no requirement for their services. Next day I was determined to get walking so I got out of bed and pushing my drip stand started to shuffle up the corridor. I managed to get to the end of the corridor only to find that I could not turn round. It was so embarrassing to have to call for help,but worst of all was the bollickings I got from all the staff,including the physio’s.

My brother got a new hip years ago, they gave him very strict instructions as to what he could and could not do, he did so well with their instructions that he got the second one done within 6 months. Sometimes you just have to go with what the medical people say, I would find it very difficult!!
