I slipt on ice on 12/23/17 Saturday. I went to ER. Determined my ankle was broken and fabia and wrapped in splint and gave me crutches. The oncall Dr. Set me up with ortho Dr. The following Friday after Christmas. I went to Dr. Set a appt for surgery the following week Jan 3, 2018. That was yesterday. The pain during pre op was nothing to what I'm experiencing now. I was only taking ibuprofen 800 pre op and now Dr prescribed hydro 7.5 with aceatphetmine. I take 1 or 2 every 4 hours and still the pain is so intense i cannot sleep. I'm crying in pain as I type this. I called the Dr office today to be told it will subside. I think my cast is also causing pain by pinching my ankle. Mind you, the Dr office is an hour away from where I reside. Like I mentioned I didn't have this near if pain up on first couple of weeks only post op. I expected some pain but not this much! Honestly this far sees over any other surgery I've ever has including giving birth to twins c section. I just so want to take a sleeping pill to be able to sleep. But I know it isn't wise to do so while taking pain meds. I'm just at a loss. I want to know what to say to my surgeon to get a different medication or if I should just call my regular home Dr. I hope to get some rest...everywhere i hear and read say to rest rest rest...but I cant...and I'm going literally out of my mind bonkers. Please tell me something positive and more importantly pray for me to be able to get some rest. Oh and pray for my husband and 7 year old.. as I am very certain I'm on their last nerve.
