DH has foot injury....



Recommended Posts

Well If it isn't bad enough that my DH has been helping me recover from band surgery on Friday. He dropped a very large piece of steel on his toes yesterday and is now on a walking cast. The tip of his big toe is fractured and he has 10 stiches in the big toe and 6 stiches in the toe next to the big toe.They had to call in a Specialist to sew up his toes because it was so severe. His toes actually split open because of the impact. There fore was very hard to put them back together. They removed both toe nails to try to keep down infection and also to stich under them.we are hoping and praying that he will keep blood flow to the big toe and it will heal correctly! He is so upset that he was suppose to be helping me and now is down himself. Thank God my mother lives next door and is giving so much help to us both. She is our sweet little nurse!!! I am so thankful that he didn't get hurt even worse and also that I am getting around a little bit better.i was able to drink a Protein Drink this AM and it took a couple of hours but I got it down with no problems at all. I am able to go to full liquids now and hope that will go okay. I am having to make my self sit down and not do to much. I just am not up to all of this right now and I can't speed up my own recovery just because this happened. I just feel helpless that I'm unable to help him much and he feels the same way about not being able to help with to much either. My mom is taking my little girl to school this week and will take DH to foot specialist tomorrow morning. Please remember to say a prayer for us that this time will get better for my family!!!

Awwww I hate to hear that! Hopefully you will be feeling better soon and will be able to help him a little. I know that is very painful for him too. Usually after the third day, you will see lots of improvement. I will send hugs and prayers your way!

OW! Sorry to hear about your hubby's toe. Has your daughter asked you to kiss it and make it better? (something my boy-oh would have suggested at her age...)

OUCH! Sorry to hear about the toes, to make matters worse, most men are such whinny patients. You might as well get some duct tape and tape that pillow around your belly, with all the getting up and down you're gonna be doing, LOL.

Well thanks for your thoughts and prayers. My DH went to foot specialist this AM and found out good news. He has feeling and good blood supply to his toes. They want him back to see Dr. in 2 weeks and they will take out the stiches then. It will still be hard for him to get around but it is really good news that he will heal and be able to walk and have feeling in his toes. Please still keep praying for a quick recovery for us both!!!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
