Hi Kitt, I am just hoping for a doctor/hospital weekend. one of my sisters had to drive me back down to the hospital so they could check my pain pump to see if it was still working since my pain had gotten so bad. According to what my doc told my family it wasn"t that bad. I got a different story from the assistant today. He said there was extensive bursitis they had to clean out and then they took off the end of my collar bone and some other bone. my foot they took the bunion off and the toe nail next to the big toe because it was ingrown. He made me promise I would take the fungal med for 3 months so it wouldn't come back like that. My pump is working but the block wore off. the nurse down in day surgery gave me two things of some stronger meds through my pump line to make sure it was still working. I dread when the pump is done tomorrow if it hurts this bad with it. I am already breaking out and itching from the tape all over me. It was a very rough experience yesterday. It took 1 1/2 hours to get an IV in and 6 different people. I have 10 needle pokes in my right arm, 2 in my left foot and then they ended up in the right side of my neck with the IV. I was real close to calling it a day and going home. They waited to put the block in my other foot until I was under general because the anesthesioloist said I had been through enough already. After wards he came and told me they had all sorts of problems with my air way because of my small lower jaw. he also looked at my daughter and told her she would have the same issues if she had surgery and should let her GP know so it would be in her chart. He said in case of emergency it could save her life. I thought that was really cool that he took the time to share that. Every one there was really great there. I didn't get out of there until 6pm last night.My surgery was half an hour late because of the IV problems. Time to go get my foot up and ice on my shoulder. This is worse than the histerectomy. Barb
