Hi All. Hope you are doing ok and had a good Christmas/New Year.
So I finally went back to work today 8mths post ankle fusion, I’m a ward sister/nurse and I work on a busy trauma unit.
I only worked on the ward helping out for 4hrs and then 2.5hrs in the office doing paper work and I’m completely shattered!
I’ve had lots of ops on my ankle, with the ankle fusion it’s 7 so far. Now I’m waiting to have the metal work taken out because the screws are starting to poke through my skin.
After doing 7.5hrs at work I’m now in so much pain due to the screws and pain in my knees.
I just feeling very deflated...I’ve even had a little cry about the fact I’m still in lots of pain. I’m sick to death of orthopaedic surgery and bones, pain and pain meds! Even going to work I’m surrounded by it too 🙄.
Sorry for moaning and the random post but I just needed to vent a little.
Because I do not look like I’m in pain people don’t even give it a second thought and I find it so frustrating!
