Not for the queasy

I had the bunion on my right foot removed this morning.
The worst part was the Novocaine injections into the area around the toe. 5 in total, and man that hurt.
The rest was easy.
A simple incision along the toe and a few cuts with the bone saw and sew her back up closed.
About an hour all told. The Podiatrists were charming and witty and helped to put me at ease.
Sure beats waiting 1.5 years for an orthopidic surgeon.
Some images for you to enjoy

I'll be immobile for almost 2 weeks and won't be driving for at least 3. Have to make damn sure nothing swells.
If I want to make it to the St Loius RPM, I have to behave myself.
