They would remove my toe nail and the nailbed, along with reconstructing in a few places. He then told me this would mean stitches, pain and not being able to walk for over two weeks. I thought, well. That's pretty horrible.
He then told me they would give me good drugs, so I said yes -thinking the pain would be manageable. No one told me until after the surgery, that I could only be on the drugs for five days, before it posed a potential health risk.
So, on Thursday I went and had my surgery. All went well, except I took extra time to wake up in recovery and wasn't feeling well at all. I later proceeded to bleed all over the recovery floor. My bad.
So, as some of you may know - the pain was horrible, basically went several days without sleep & spending way too much time on horse forum. I also had some issues with bleeding & my leg still randomly goes purple. But, I am (today being Tuesday) beginning to be able to go for small walks around the house now. The pain is still pretty bad, but I'm not having any percription drugs for it. Which is probably why its two am and I'm still awake..
Now, I can attach gross progress pictures - if anyone wants to see them?
