Re: Nerve block question?

Courtney, I'm having my flat foot corrected and my accessory navicular bone removed. If I can remember right, I'm having the calcaneal neck lengthening, cuneiform something or other(removing bone and replacing it with bone graft on lateral side of foot), lengthening some ligaments, repairing one torn ligament and checking to see if my peroneal tendon is torn and needs to be repaired. Brostrom something or other. And gastroc. recession on my calf. Uggh. I sounds like so damn much and I know it all is connected and is what will make my foot function properly again (supposedly). I have no idea how long all this takes in surgery. Mine will be outpatient. Kinda wish it wasn't, just for the first night.
