Nearly the 3 Year Anniversary
As those of you who’ve suffered from a lisfranc injury know…celebrating the day you fractured your foot isn’t really an exciting celebration. However, it is rewarding.
Looking back on my journey, and posts, I’m glad to say that I am nearly back to normal. I haven’t experienced severe pain or swelling in some time! I have complete feeling in my foot (toes included)…the only place where I’ve lost feeling is along the incision. The scar is starting the fade and I’m no longer walking with a limp all of the time!
However, I’ve also realized that my foot will never be 100% normal. I still experience soreness after a long day. If I’ve been on my feet all day then I do limp a little in the evening. My foot is stiff in the winter due to arthritis.
I’ve found that a cloth/elastic foot brace helps when I’m experiencing soreness or stiffness. I bought mine at Target for about $15 and it’s a great investment!
I still can’t wear high heels, and my balance isn’t what it used to be. I’m hoping to start getting back into Yoga soon. Honestly, Yoga is amazing for balance and stretching…the different poses really pushed me to stretch out my entire injured foot without worrying about overworking it.
As always, please feel free to post questions or comments! I try my best to respond to everyone.
I wish you all the best in your recovery!
