Re: Surgery Scheduled BUT scared to death!!
If the doctor does not give you the pump, you will be ok. I had a seventeen hour nerve block and was kept for two days at the hospital - it was only suppose to be one day but I ended up having a drain in so I needed to stay an extra day for that. If you take your pain meds when due to stay ahead of the pain and keep your foot elevated, it will not be to bad. This was my first surgery and was really freaked out. I watched all of the procedures being done on you tube, and as awful as it was it actually helped me to know what exactly was being done. Good luck.
