Bunionectomy: First Night

Man. I was wrong. When I had a Bunionectomy done on my right foot last April, I didn’t have any surgery pain, just some pain from the splint digging into me. But this time, holy crap I thought I was going to die from my panic attack.

My mom says that even though it was the same surgery, just on my left foot, that all surgery’s are different and could react differently. Which was true. Because my right foot was basically pain free, but my left, was in total extreme pain.

I was having real intense foot pains last night. And it was only the first night .__. The pain was not from the surgery since it wasn’t revolving around that area; instead it was from the splint again. It just seemed like it was squeezing my foot into a freaking sausage roll. It was so bad I couldn’t even sleep and I couldn’t stay still.

I know the point of the splint is to keep everything in place, but damn, it caused me so much pain. I was crying and my breathing was out of control. I just felt like I was hyperventilating and having a panic attack. So I woke my mom up and she called my doctor to see what we should do. My doc told her to give me a Lortab for the pain since I had already taken the extreme pain pill, but that didn’t help. I ended up vomiting it out anyway.

After a lot of icing my foot, the pain started to slow down, I got my breathing under control and I was able to fall asleep. My mom stayed in my room with me until I fell asleep and came back to check up on me every hour to make sure I was okay. I’m just real glad she was there for me cause I don’t know what I would’ve done. So thanks mum! ♥
