What To Expect After Foot Surgery NYC

By Kathleen Gould

If you find yourself recovering after having foot surgery NYC, this helpful and easy to follow guide is perfect for you! There are a few things you can do to help your recovery be as easy and pain free as possible.

The first step in your recovery is to follow all of your doctors orders exactly. Although they may not always be pleasant, trust that the doctor really does know best. If for any reason you feel that you may have been misinformed by your doctor, you always have the right to seek out a second opinion.

Try to rest as much as you can while you are recovering from your surgery. It may be quite painful for you to place any amount of pressure on the effected foot. Consider having someone else stay with you and assist you with your daily activities when you return home after foot surgery. Your doctor may also recommend keeping your foot elevated in order to minimize swelling to the area.

In order to minimize your pain while healing, your doctor may have prescribed some medications for you to fill. Try to fill these prescriptions on your way home from the hospital, so that you will not have to go out or worry about having them filled at a later time. You may even want to set an alarm to help you remember to take your medicines on time.

If possible, you should also consider buying or borrowing a walker or a cane to help you get around. When you are walking from room to room in your home this can be a big help!

If your foot remains bandaged after your surgery, do not allow the bandages to get wet or dirty. This can be a difficult task during showers and baths, but it is not impossible. You can use plastic garbage bags to wrap the area and secure with tape in order to keep the bandages dry.

If at any point during your healing you feel any extreme pain or notice your foot or leg changing color do not hesitate to get medical attention as soon as possible. This can be a sign of a lack of circulation.

This easy to follow guide can help you during your recover period after foot surgery NYC. Before you know it, you will be back to normal!
