What would you do?

I had surgery Monday to remove hardware (2 giant screws) from my heel. I'm in a splint and supposed to be nonweight bearing for 2 weeks. Well I have one of those knee scooter things and I flipped over the handle bars because I was going too fast. My foot did hit the ground and it stings but it's hard to tell how bad it is because my pain meds are in full effect (2 hydrocodones and 800 mg of ibuprofen).

Should I go to the ER? Would you? As far as I can tell I didn't do anything to the stitches, I'm just worried I did something to that heel bone.

Call the ER and ask them.

As long as there is no blood, I would wait and see how it is in the morning and call the surgeons office. Not putting weight on it is to help it heal correctly so you may have a little set back but I won't worry to much about it.

I would call my doctor and run it by him/her

Why the hell would you ride a scooter after a serious surgery ? 😒
Yes go to the ER. Why is this even a question?
