Hi everyone. I am having surgery on my foot at the end of August. Thankfully I will only have a local and IV sedation so don't have the general anesthesia worries. Also I will have no pins, screws, cast or crutches just a large dressing and a surgical shoe to wear. Mobility will be limited somewhat for awhile. I won't be taking any pain meds since they make me so sick that I would rather have the pain. I have had several surgeries in the past but this will be the first one since I was diagnosed with fibro. So my question is does anyone have any pre-op or post-op suggestions, tips or advice for me? I have a good grasp on what the surgery and recovery involves but have to say I am somewhat concerned about
the aftermath as far as my fibro goes. In the grand scheme of things this surgery isn't that involved and I am probably making way too big of a deal about
it in my head but I do understand with fibro, anything like recovering from surgery or a physical or emotional trauma can be iffy. I would really appreciate any words of wisdom you all may have. Thanks so much. Lisa
