had surgery today

i am a little out of it. actually alot. the dr removed my hardware after toe fusion. i have 1 screw left. he removed 6 screws and a huge mtal plate. i brought them home. i really dont see how i walked with these, but my toe fused and he said to my husband he never wants to see me again for surgical purposes and i relayed the same message. i go next wednesday for bandage removal and then will have to go fot pt on the hammertoe. i only wish this surgery went well, he told my husband he was afraid the screws would not come out easily and i still dont know why i have 1. i am happy, but scared at the same time. i woke up from the surgery in total pain and they told me i was the only one to ever wake up in pain. i told them i want a vicadin and they gave it to me. i feel pain still, but they gave me a presciption for darvocet and cellebrex. i will post whjen i can. i am so groggy now. debbie

Re: had surgery today

If the blood is wet in places GO IN.
24 hours after my second bunion surgery, I had a saturated, blood soaked bandage with some wet blood and I went in immediately.
However, all was well in the end as it stopped bleeding that day.
The POD was concerned and stated that he would have to go back in if it didn't stop. That was almost more than I could bear to hear after a 4 hour surgery the day b4.
But, all was well!!!!!
