Nerve Block

Hi everyone,

I just had ankle tendon surgery yesterday and they did a nerve block. They told me they were going to put me under twilight for the 2 hour surgery. I had a difficult time waking up and was told that my leg wouldn't stop twitching so they had to do general. Couple of questions - why would my leg twitch under a nerve block? And I still can't move my toes or feel my foot. It's been almost 36 hours. Is that normal?

Thanks!

Re: Nerve Block

No that is not normal. Did they not call you the second day to make sure it had gone away? I had a nerve block on June 15. On the morning of the 17th the surgery center called to see if the nerve block had worn off, asked me to wiggle mo foot and toes, etc. I would call the surgeon ASAP. Whoever is on call should call you back,

Re: Nerve Block

The nerve block on my ankle also took quite a while to fully wear off. It started wearing off around the 32 hour mark and was totally gone by around 40 hours.

It was great and weird at the same time!

I know right? It wore off after 48 hours and now I wish I had it back!! I've still got the tingling in my feet and toes. It's not painful - but feels like your foot is constantly "falling asleep".

I had a brostrom repair and she shaved some bone from my foot/ankle. I CAN NOT WAIT until I can walk again. I read a lot on these boards and it helped me to prepare some - but I am still having trouble hobbling around. I've broken the toilet paper dispenser and towel rack in my bathroom trying to pull myself up. OOPS!!!
