Surgery Tomorrow

Tomorrow is the surgery I've been needing for almost 2 years and wanting for almost 2 months.  Here's what they are going to do:

1. Gastroc Tendon Release ( releasing the tight tendon in my calf muscle that connects to the fascia. Inject Platelet Rich Plasma ( my own blood) into the wound to increase healing.

2.Distal Tarsal Tunnel ( releasing the entrapped nerves ( like Carpal Tunnel but in the feet...my inside ankle)

3.  Plantar Fasciatomy ( completely sever one of the three connective tissues that runs from my heel to my big toe)

4. Repair Peroneall Tendon ( on outside ankle area)

5.  Complete Bunionectomy ( break big toe, move over bone, reset, put in screws)

I am anxious but I'm ready to begin healing!
