The first day of surgery was cake. My feet were incredibly numb so I didn't feel any pain after I left the hospital. I was pretty immobile nevertheless and walked at the pace of a snail when going to the restroom. I have been elevating my feet and taking the prescribed antibiotic and ibuprofin. I haven't taken a vicodin yet at this point. As you can see in the pic, no pins were used on any toes. My doc said it was because the bones were pretty cooperative during surgery. *shrugs shoulder* I'm not mad, the idea of those pins sticking out would have drove me crazy. But he says they are really just a mind f**k, and not painful at all (unless you stub them of course).
