Hello everyone at H.W.
Hope things are well with everyone. I had my neurectomy operation last week to cut one of the main nerves out of my right foot. I had to stay overnight because they wanted to use a epidural block for 24 hours, this in trying to trick the CRPS and lower the all around trama that goes along with the procedure. The good news is that a part of my foot is completely numb but, its in the wrong spot. I havent been able to take the dressing off yet until Friday when I go for my follow up. At the same time I'm going to request another temporary block in my foot on the extensor hallucis longus tendon. I was kind of hoping that the first or second neurectomy would hit the right spot so I dont have to keep pulling stuff out to find my desired area. (not that my doctor would do that anyway. she is with the dellon institute, but i probably would want to) Anyway, just another letdown, fortunatly I dont get too high for any procedure anymore, but I also don't get too low either.(something my 13 year old and myself talk about all the time. comes in handy when playing sports)
So hopfully if I get decent relief in my designated area, I will book another surgery ASAP
The people and the surgeons, nurses and doctors where all fantastic. My surgeon Dr. Hung from the Dellon Institute, she is so down to earth, did the procedure at the Winchester hospital in Winchester Ma. Small Place compared to the pain mangmnt hospitals, but never felt uncomfortable or needed anything without them right there to get it for you. I hope my next operation will be there again.(she operates at several diff hospitals)
Anyway I hope everyone is doing thier best they can to help themselves , and all the loved ones around them (its not always that easy)
Have a great week H.W.
