My foot surgery

    Yesterday, I had surgery on my right Achilles tendon, which has been hurting for over a year. The procedure, called Tenex, is minimally invasive and rather interesting.

    After injecting a local anesthetic into my foot (this was actually the worst part of the whole process) a very small incision is made. It's about 1/4". Then, a small ultrasound probe is inserted. This is used to break up the damaged tissue, which is then suctioned out.

    I am feeling very little pain-just some tenderness at the incision site. I have to wear a cast boot for the next 2 weeks. Since it's my right foot, I can't drive which is kind of annoying, but a pretty minor complaint. Hopefully, this will finally eliminate the pain. Wish me luck with the outcome.

    Thanks for the good wishes. So far so good. I’m not in any pain, but tired & bored out of my mind. I need rest, but it’s ironically hard to rest when I don’t feel bad.
