The surgery went fine. I had some very sweet nurses that took extra good care of me. The anesthesiologist was a funny guy and all in all the day wasn't as bad as I had been dreading. The print above of Sheldon Bunny is by Loser Pet Shop on Etsy. I can totally relate to his pain.
Last night is another story. The nerve blocker that was supposed to last 24 hours in my leg unfortunately wore off after just 8 hours. They had given me 2 of them knowing my history with dental pain blockers wearing off in mid procedure. I spent much of the night in horrible pain even with the painkillers. It is starting to get a bit less throbbing this evening thankfully.
I actually had to call the exchange in the middle of the night since I didn't know if I could stand it. My surgeon had made the prescription for only one pain med at a time. The last script had been for 1 or 2 as needed. I wanted to be sure that this one wasn't a much stronger one that would keep me from taking 2 at a time so I called just to be safe. They had a Dr. call me and he told me I could take 2 along with an Ibuprofen and to ice it down. It got me through the night and I've been okay with just 1 at a time today. I know that I have a very low pain tolerance but the intensity of this pain was overwhelming. It was a constant relentless pain, not just the throbbing that I had gotten used to.
As my sister said my body is probably annoyed that I let someone put foreign objects inside of me and is fighting back with the pain. There are actually 2 screws on one side and 6 on the other with the plate in between. I have no idea how big the incision is but I'm betting my career as a sandal model is definitely out at this point.
Thanks for your positive thoughts and prayers. Mom said that I was handling it much better than she would have expected. I can be pretty whiny on a good day so they weren't expecting me to be so positive with an actual crisis.
