Re: PTTD surgery "Day surgery????"
My surgery was done in a regular hospital with 23 hour observation (so it was considered outpatient surgery). After the surgery I was taken to a room and had a morphine pump (which I didn't really need until the wee hours of the morning when the block began to wear off). I was actually glad to stay what ended up being overnight with the 23 hours. I think I was able to kind of relax a little more because I wasn't mentally focused on the fact that I would be going home in a few hours. Plus being in a regular hospital room was nice. My husband was with me and smuggled me in some good coffee. We watched the Olympics as I recall (well sort of, I was in and out).
HURTS-TO-WALK- Surgery again next week?????? Good luck and I hope you have a quick recovery. How is the first foot feeling these days?
