Re: numbness after surgery
Wow, I don't think I'd be seeing that Dr. again. It doesn't seem like he's taking your concerns seriously. I'd definately go for a second opinion on that.
As for me, my Dr. didn't bother to keep me after surgery. He doesn't use packing or splints since, as he says, "they just add to the pain and don't do much more than that" I really didn't have too much bleeding. The day of the surgery I did, but it didn't help that when i came out of the anesthesia I decided to have a panic attack and was rubbing my nose. Took 3 nurses, some drugs in my iv and an oxygen mask to calm me down. I've still got a little bit of blood, but nothing extreme or anything that really bothers me.
Just hearing what you're going through, I would go see a second Dr. This just doesn't sound right. Hope things work out for you.
