Re: cheilectomy

I had one with an osteotomy almost 12 weeks ago. Most important is for the first few days (I did 5) keep your foot above heart level, ice it and take pain medication as prescribed, on schedule, regardless if you have pain or not. I did that and had no pain. The only discomfort I had post surgery was from the swelling once I started walking in the post op shoe. Ice and elevation are the keys. Feel free to aks any questions!
