I am slightly more mobile now than I was when I posted from my phone.
Not 100%, but I should, if all goes well, be out of this cast within a week or so.
I got the stitches out yesterday, and have been in a lot of pain. I had the on-call foot doc paged at about 9pm last night... and again at 10:30pm... and again at 1am. No callback. I called the office directly (the office recording gave me the number to call to ask for the on-call doc) once it was office hours again, and left a voicemail which was supposedly with the nurses. That was about an hour ago, and still nothing.
I have never had stitches before, so I honestly don't know if this increased pain is normal or what. I have no way to get anywhere if I need to, so that sucks. I mean, I could call an ambulance, but if this is something that is normal and I just have to live through it, fine. I just... I am a diabetic so I don't want to mess around if, God forbid, it is NOT normal.
This is ridiculous.
I am so sick of not being able to get around and fend for myself.
Here's hoping they call soon and that this is nothing to worry about. Not worrying is a good thing.
