My Foot Surgery!

So, in April I was diagnosed with Morton's Neuroma. I had a horrible pain in the ball of my foot that felt like a constant marble in my shoe when I walked. Allen had to modify my elliptical pedal it was hurting so bad. FORGET walking barefoot on anything. It made my toes tingle and go numb... Stupid.
April 29th I had surgery to remove it. 
Guys... there are two ways that a doctor can get this out, from the top of your foot, or from the bottom. My doctor had to go in from the bottom. I have about a 3 inch or longer incision in the bottom of my foot. Then that bitch closed that shit with STAPLES. 

I've had 5 surgeries in my life, none of them involved staples. Two of my 3 c-sections I had to talk the Dr. into using sutures instead of staples. It wasn't even...a thought in my mind about this one though. 
Check it out....
This was a few days after, She had it wrapped up and I wasn't supposed to unwrap it at all, but one night after a shower, it felt like a brick was putting pressure on my staples every time I set my foot down, So I unwrapped it and surprise! This is the crap I see. 
I bawled the first time I saw it. Turned my foot towards my face and immediately burst into tears, along with laughing. Allen was looking at me like, "Wtf is going on right now?" I think it was just a surprise ? I don't know.. when I was done though, I wrapped it back up and went on about my business. 

The Dr. sent me home in a boot... It shouldn't be called a boot though, It was a brick with Velcro straps on it. You want me to fucking walk on top of staples in my foot for 2 weeks? With this freaking boot strapped to it?? How about no Scott. Thank God we had gotten some crutches from my mom back when Allen rolled the shit out of his ankle... I rocked those for 2 full freakin weeks. 

Got my staples out yesterday and I am so excited. It still hurts to put pressure on it, and I definitely won't be getting on the elliptical within the next week, but she said no restrictions so, I guess I could if I wanted to! 
Here it is now...
Except some of the tape is already coming off. The top part, between my toes hurts so much. It sucks. My poor poor little tootsies. Now, the whole area between my two toes, is numb. I have no feeling at all between them or on top a little... it's weird. I'm just praying it heals correctly and I have no more problems. My left foot was having the same issue as my right one, but I'm not sure if I ever want to go through that shit again. 

OH... the best part? I have a chicken leg, and a regular leg now. Thanks a lot crutches. My right calf isn't as big as my left calf now. Allen noticed it yesterday. So... that's awesome. Super awesome.

But... now my foot is taken care of, and the uterine ablation I had has been recovered from so my weight loss will go down again. 

I've been eating nothing but freaking sugar and carbs lately. I'm out of control. I'm almost 100% sure I'm back up to 160! I've been down though, not out. I got a new water bottle, no feeling in my foot, a modified elliptical and a little bit of motivation. 
Like, hey, you don't fit into your pants anymore kinda motivation.  yikes. 

will be the hardest and most worked for 30 lb weight loss ever.
