and I’m very happy about it. I’ve cut this in to two parts for brevity. Click here for the rest of the story.
Finally, what happened today:
I went in for the first of four procedures today. It hurt, but not a lot. Somewhere worse than a toothache, but not as bad as a root canal. I wouldn’t repeat it if I could avoid it, but eh, we gotta fix what we gotta fix. I’m up and out, walking on the damaged foot. That’s required, by the way. Walking avoids blood clots. It stings a little, but not much, and my gait is back to normal. I can’t wear my boots over the bandages, but I get to take those off tomorrow. Then it’s on to compression stockings.
I have to do this again, once every Wednesday and Friday until the end of the month. After that, I’m in the clear. Also, today was the biggest/worst of the lot.
