Hi jcrrw, I am now 5 weeks post op and totally understand your anxiety. I'm not going to sugar coat because there will be pain but as everyone else has said as long as you keep ahead of the pain it can be manageable. I had my surgery outpt so no hospital stay for me and I had several other procedures done as well. I had a nerve block which lasted for 26 hrs but once it wore off WOW the pain was excruciating. Just remember one day at a time..I just got out of my cast last week and am now in a boot for another 8 weeks. I still have pins in my foot until the end of the month but once they come out I can start pwb which scares me to death but I can't wait to start walking again! Make sure to have all your equipment ie; crutches, WC, knee scooter in place as well as making your house accessible to using this stuff. Your going to need a shower chair and possibly a rised toilet seat. I also have a removable shower head. Just remember to rest and don't try to do more than you can and stay in front of the pain!! Keep us updated and Good Luck!!
