What does wrinkled foot when recovering from foot surgery suggest?
I doubt it would be due to reduced swelling, but need to view the region
Hello sir and welcome.
Thank you for writing to us.
I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. A few wrinkles are common, especially if the region has been covered for a long duration of time. But the reduced swelling should usually cause the foot to return to its normal state, without any wrinkles, so I doubt the wrinkles to be due to reduced swelling (which would mean it would be permanent).
It would although help me to answer more directly if you could provide me with an image of the affected region. You can do so by attaching an image of the affected region to our discussion for my viewing or email it to:
with "ATTN: Dr. Shoaib Khan" in the subject line so it can be directed to me
Could you also let me know if the region is dry or wet? Wet may be due to something being applied on it, or may be you got the dressing wet for a while, or your foot was sweating?
From your history, I see that you are still on antibiotics; could you explain why this is exactly? Is it because your wound has not yet completely healed? May be the wound is still open, or oozing, or draining, etc.?
I look forward to hearing from you in order to help you further sir. Please feel free to write back to me with any extra information you have that can help, or any extra queries you have sir.
