After sleeping on the couch for about a month, I tried sleeping in a regular bed for a couple of days since I was given the ok to do stairs with a crutch (50% WB). I slept ok on the first night and horribly on the second. I think my leg had too much movement and the knee was always hot and stiff. Sleeping on the couch makes me go to the washroom way more often -not sure why. Something to do with my position, but my leg felt much more secure and in place....Also, I find that while I can wiggle all my toes a few feel numb most of the time. Is that normal? Anyone else experience toe numbness with tib/fib fx with IM nail procedure? The knee has been numb since the beginning around the scar area. Thx.
