Stitches are finally out.  The internals are mostly dissolved. I have a new set of steri strips and hopefully they will not cause the same level of itching as the first set.  Though we are thinking that 90% of all the problems was the allergic reaction to the internal sutures. The incision is finally healing correctly and is looking less angry. I've been given clearance to start walking as tolerated.

Holy hell that hurts.  My ankle and foot don't quite know how to behave and there are parts of the sole of the foot that are still pretty angry. On a pain scale of 1 - 10, where 1 is "Wheee I'm having a good day" and 10 is "OMGWTFBBQ SHEEP ON FIRE ARE IN LESS PAIN THAN YOU",  I am camped out at a happy 7.5, "OMG woman will you let the drugs work first before trying to walk". If I can stand upright on my own, I might try a proper shower later. It's the little things in life you miss the most like walking and proper showers when you cannot do them on your own.

Has having the stitches out helped with the allergic reaction?

The internal sutures are mostly dissolved, which were causing 90% of the problems. Now I am dealing with steri-strip fun part 2.

But I have better anti-itch medication this time. And they will only be on for a short while.
