was just wondering if anyone could provide me with some hope I suppose. I'm 19 had my scarf osteotomy and Akin surgery last Friday on both feet. When I came out of the operation the nurses discovered the nerve blockers didn't work and I was in excruciating pain, after vomiting and fainting on Saturday they decided to keep me in a extra night. I recently before hand had compartment syndrome and had my facia released on the majority of my compartments, before the surgery I had rare bunion pain but had been advised to get them done to help with poor foot mechanics. I've been given a partial weight bearing shoes which I have to wear for 6 weeks I get my stitches out next week and a splint fitted. I was just wondering, and I know it's very early days but when does it get any less painful, days seemed to be as bad as the last, it's elevated all day and night give or take loo breaks, I'm only taking ibuprofen because paracetamol doesn't agree with me, I have a temperature and go from sweating to freezing throughout the night. I'm going mental being on bed rest as I'm usually a very active teenager and starting to get awful back pain no matter what position I lie in. I just think I'm writing here for any hope and to hear any fellow stories or advice about how to aid recovery. I know I sound impatient I just want to be sure I'm doing all I can and I think I just need to hear it gets better! Sorry for the long draining post, any replies would be very appreciated!
