My Surgery Updated

*Warning pictures of toes and wounds are shown in this post*

Hey guys,

So since I got quite good feedback from my other post about my surgery, I decided to do an update post.

It's almost been a week since I had part of my toe nails removed, and they are healing so well. I got them done last Thursday, and now on the Wednesday I'm allowed to take my bandages off! The wounds feels like they are knitting together nicely, and I hardly have any pain.

The sticky material is on there to help bind my skin and help the healing process. 

The only pain I am getting is when I try to wear socks when the rest of my feet are cold or when my duvet is on my feet. The pressure is far to painful as it squeezed my wounds. 

However I haven't tried wearing normal shoes, and have been advised to wear flip flops for another 5 weeks to make sure there is no chance of my nails been infected or squashed. 

This is what my toes look like now. They are still swollen, and awkward to walk on, but I have no pain like I did before the operation. I am really pleased and can't wait until they are back to normal!

If anyone has any questions, please ask :)

Leave me a comment,

  1. Ohhh gosh they do look ever so sore :(

    Hope they heal okay, and quickly!

    I dunno how I'd get on if I do end up having this surgery, I can't wear flip flops to work lmao, and I bet driving would be a no no too :/
