In the waiting room

i am remarkably calm, shouldn't I be more stressed? I was in worse shape earlier this week! its a Catholic hospital, and they just said prayer for all of the new babies. That was nice.

Like others I was very calm before my surgery. Good luck with surgery let us know how everything went when you can.

Re: In the waiting room

Good luck! I was calm too, actually got a good night's sleep before and was calm before surgery. I think I had stressed enough in the weeks prior and was happy to be getting it over with.

Re: In the waiting room

Hi all, block wore off around 2 this afternoon -- that was fun. It was strange, I could feel different areas awaken sequentially, no doubt in the same order that the doc performed them -- extra local anthesia??? Taking oxycodone, vistaril, and Tylenol every 2 hours, pain and ache but not enough to bring tears to my eyes or anything, at least not in a sustained way. There are some serious breakthroughs now and again -- I am trying to simply not move. Sleeping tons, eating lightly and even made it to the bathroom without falling over or hurting myself! I am very glad this is behind me now. :-). This board really prepared me for what to expect, thank you all.

Re: In the waiting room

Glad you are doing well - try and stay ahead of the pain - it really helps.
I was in hospital 2 nights and the first night the nurse kept coming around to see if the block was wearing off and would touch all of my toes to see what I could feel so she could start the oral pain killers as it started to wear off. It's a very strange thing to be able to feel different parts of your foot/ankle and not others as it wears off
Get lots of sleep and rest
