I had foot surgery on Wednesday to remove a few bone spurs that did not belong there and should not have been growing there! I have had them for years, but they have really been bothering me quite a bit lately. When Matt was in vet school I used to run alot. That is when my foot started hurting me, but a little rub down and warm water took care of the problem. It used to hurt me once a month and then went away quickly. In the past few years it would bother me once a week or so, but lately is has been hurting me alot more often and the pain would not go away. So I took matters into Dr Taylor's hands.
Wednesday Dr Taylor took the bone chunks out, I took drugs and slept for 2 days, and now all is well! I had a check up with him today and I was excited to see the incisions and how things are coming along. He is very pleased with how things look, and I am pleased with how I feel now that I don't need the drugs. I am still a little swollen, but things are good. I can walk almost normally and it is good to get outside again. I have to wear this sweet boot. I have been wearing it since the surgery, but now that I am up and at em, it is kinda funny. I get to stay with this sweet thing for another 9 days, which means I am going to look sweet while celebrating the 4th of July in Torrey, Utah!
