I do have to have one more surgery next Friday. I have a really long screw across the joint in my ankle and she wants to go ahead and take it out. I'm glad. I can feel it when I walk and it isn't pleasant. I will be really happy to have it removed. I kind of want to ask her if I can have it after she takes it out. Is that weird?
I do have quite a bit of pain when I walk. I'm sure that will just get better over time. It's bound to be painful after not really walking for the past eight months or so. I also have some areas of numbness in the top of my foot. She's hoping those will get better after she removes that screw. They may not. I may never have full function in that ankle again. She said it will very likely always give me problems with pain and weakness. There go my hopes of winning the Boston Marathon. :)
