Feet Don't Fail Me Now
This post may not be for the faint of heart or for anyone who doesn't enjoy torturing themselves with gross pics of post-op feet. Yes, this is my foot and now I'll never be a foot model. Not that I ever wanted to, but at least that was an option, whereas now, my career has ended before it began...haha!
For those of you who have never seen my "Flinstone" feet, I'll let you in on a little secret. Only one word can describe my feet...and it's a four letter one...UGLY. You thought I would say something else!
Anyway, I've had a very painful bunion for some time now (over a yr) and chose to ignore the pain. I just bought some really ugly shoes, so I could be on my feet all day. Recently, I've started to work out and that's when I couldn't ignore the pain any longer. So, I made an appointment with Dr. Werber in Scottsdale, AZ (love him) and he told me it was more than a bunion and then launches into a very medical explanation, but the long and short of it is the bunion was shaved off, the bones repaired, and a pin put in. At my next appointment, I'm going to ask for more details.
It hurts, but the worst part is not being able to drive or get around. I wear a very attractive heel boot that I'm hoping Belle will bejewel for me, but it's not comfortable and the swelling at the end of the day makes me want to sit on the couch all day with ice on my foot. It's getting better day by day and they've given me some good pain meds.
Just as an FYI: daytime TV is horrible, so I've become addicted to etsy.com. Is it possible to spend all day on the computer, why yes, it is!
