Post surgical care is critical for anyone who as had foot surgery. Proper aftercare helps ensure fewer complications and more rapid recovery. Discuss with your podiatrist the regimen he or she suggests for your recovery. If you are prescribed a surgical shoe, out it on whenever you walk. Do not allow your foot to dangle, and try to keep your foot elevated to reduce pressure. If a walker or cane is recommended, don't be shy about using one. Ice the area for the first few days post surgery. Doing so will decrease swelling and bruising. Bandages should be kept clean and dry. If anything seems "off" about your recovery, be sure to alert your podiatrist. For experienced, compassionate care for foot problems off all kinds, we welcome your call at 623-975-8397.
