On the Other Side

Very relieved to be put back together, as Dr. Barrow described the results of my surgery to my husband post-op. Two nerve blocks for my ankle and low leg have me free of pain for the first time since I fell three weeks ago. Going to enjoy every minute until the blocks wear off.

A pain reliever, antibiotic, and meds for anti-itch and anti-nausea are on board. Doctor’s orders are to stay in bed except for using the restroom for the next two weeks. Follow-up visit at that point will be a transition from surgical dressing back to the AirCast, except my boot was removed in the operating room and it didn’t make it home with me. Called the ortho office. A nurse there is going to do some checking; hopefully they’ll have that boot when I go back. If not, I’ll need to go get a new one. Not a big deal.

I’m so glad to be done with surgery. On the mend from here. Oh, and the ordered knee scooter arrived while I was at the hospital! Things are definitely looking up, which is a very good thing. Whew.
