Hi, I'm 12 days post Op and I'm suffering from horrible panic attacks right after my accident and now they are worse after surgery. I feel closterphobic with the splint on and have to go in to Drs office Wed for them to put a cast on. I will have to wear the cast for 3 weeks and then we will see how I'm doing at that point. I have a special needs son on top of everything else that is going on so I'm having to give up control to my mom and husband when it comes to my son. This is so hard to do. I'm realizing I'm a bit of a control freak. The other night I went into the ER because I couldn't handle another day of clustered panic attacks. They gave me Two 1mg pills of Ativan and they kicked in about 2 hours after taking. That night was the first night of consistent sleep that I had gotten in 3 days. At that point I had gone 3 days with only 2 hrs of sleep. I can't take norco or percaset because it makes my panic attacks worse. So I'm just popping Tylenol . I've been dealing with nonstop pain and literally just want to give up. But I know I can't. Just so exhausted and tired of fighting the panic attacks and the pain. Has anyone gone through this?
