I am at 5.5 weeks post-op and I still can’t paint my toes. I have really good range of motion (ROM), but my leg still feels a bit stiff. It is hard to reach my toes. I am having trouble washing my feet in the shower. I use a brush with a long handle to reach my feet. Most of all I want to paint my toes for summer. I dream about pretty, painted toes in all sorts of bright summer colors. I know I could just go get a pedicure, but I have not found a good place to go yet and I want to save money for my summer trip to my hometown.
I start physical therapy next week so hopefully I can work on my ROM and be able to paint my toes soon.
Here is hoping for a pretty summer pedicure.
