I had surgery on my left foot on Thur 4/6. Dr wants me partial weight bearing with assistance. and Im also in a CAM Boot. Today Mon 4/10 my cats were fighting, and I went to investigate. While trying to get my one cat back downstairs, I came down and some how tripped. It happened so fast that I dont remember how it happened. But I ended falling and rug burning both my knees. I know my CAM boot go caught which made me fall. This happened about an hour ago. Im am in bed now, and my heel is killing me. Does anyone think theres a chance I could of pull the tendon more? It was sever pain when it happen that I screamed. Im off work this week, so Ive got my wheel chair and Im completely weight free in it. I think not even 1 week post-op is too soon to weight bear. (I had my right foot done May 2016, and was weight free for 2 weeks, healed great)
Im afraid to go to my doctor, and this Dr doesnt have after hours, so they send patients to the ER. The ER dr is not going to have my medical history for this. I just took pain meds an hour before this happened. But hell its still killing me and hour afterwards.
Im just afraid its damaged more - and I cant find anything online about what to do or symptoms.
My husband had the surgery on 4/11 and had a similar experience. Was taking our puppy outside 2 days later and slipped on the steps. After that the pain went from bearable to severe. HIs foot is all bruised. He has been back to the doctor to get the stitches out and have it looked out and the doctor told him that he had torn the ligament more but probably helped. To this day he can not walk. The pain is worse every day. We don't know what to do to make it better. Have you had any luck?
My husband is in so much pain. He goes back to the doctor on Friday. If I'm not satisfied with his answers, I'm going to look at another doctor.
