Achilles Tendon Rupture Blog: D+7, Surgery D+2

The first half day after surgery was great–the anesthesia and initial dose of painkiller was all I needed. Yesterday and today my leg has been throbbing, and the foot has been been swelling. My attempt at taking a shower was quite painful. My guess is that showering will be less painful once I trade my splint for a hinged boot cast. I have my appetite back. I could really use a shawarma now, with baklava.
