I had surgery on Monday for a Trimalleolar fracture/dislocation and was discharged Tuesday. I was given a nerve block which lasted about 24 hours and then the pain arrived!! Intense pain in my foot and on both sides of my ankle. I was given oxycodone 5mg and told to take 3 pills every 3 hours but it only dulls the pain slightly for about 2 hours and then the intense pain comes back.This is more painful then the actual injury when my foot was hanging from my leg!
On a side note I got a visit today from some of the players who were in the game that I got hurt. That lifted my spirits for awhile even with the pain I was in. One of the players actually had footage of my injury and asked if I wanted to see it. I actually did want to see it just to see what actually happened because I thought I landed on someone elses foot but it was a complete non contact injury. I tried to make a play at the net and when I landed came down with all my body weight (188 lbs) on the outside of my left foot and my ankle rolled out as my foot went vertical. I looked at it once and then had to turn away lol. Not a pretty sight.
