... I see that a lot of people have questions about foot wear! I had a bunectomy 5 weeks ago and still cannot fit my foot into any shoe because of the swelling. I believe this will last for some time. ... (4 replies)
... the words he used to describe and assess my "plan" in the medical notes which I requested a copy of. Unfortunately most all is GREEK to me. All I know is that a Bunectomy will be needed on left foot, and reconstruction of the right, because of advanced osteoarthritis. ... (0 replies)

... I did not have a bunectomy but a fusion...my 5th surgery on this foot. It is encouraging to hear from you that have healed and are doing well. ... (9 replies)
... With general, your entire body literally shuts down and you have a breathing tube, etc. Your entire body is put to sleep. Coming out of it takes some time and often it makes you queasy and the groggy effects take time to wear off. I had gallbladder surgery with general a few months ago and it really took a while until I got over the sleepiness. And even with anti-nausea meds,... (7 replies)
... What's the difference in general anes. and IV sedation? I don't know what I had but it was wonderful. I did get an IV with something in it to make me woozy and they wheeled me into OR and I scooted over to the table and lay down and then some guy put a mask over my face and I was out of it and when I woke up in recovery I felt like I'd had a long nap and it was wonderful. I... (7 replies)
... Whatever type you decide on, ask for the anti-nausea pill beforehand. I was a little hesitant about putting anything in my stomach after the cut-off time for food and water, but when the nurse said "Take it, sister", I swallowed. I didn't get nauseated (had IV & local block), so I guess it worked. By the way, I was absolutely starving by suppertime that first day, after... (7 replies)
... While I only had my right bunion done, I had IV sedation and I'd like to add my voice to the chorus of praise for it. I was alert enough at the start to remember being wheeled into the O.R. and to "help" with my own transfer from the guerney onto the operating table. Very soon thereafter, I was out. Thankfully, I have no memory of the surgery, including the dreaded sounds... (7 replies)
... Local Anesthesia is fine, provided you are also given IV sedation. I also get nauseated from general and asked which they would give me. Seems the general consensus is to do IV sedation, which is not nearly as heavy as general and some call a "twilight sleep." I had something to relax me and then felt a bit loopy as they rolled me into the OR (I was making jokes). Then through... (7 replies)
... I was in a "twilight" state. Not general, but I wasn't there either! I slept through most of it. I remember waking up at one point for about 1 second and then I went back to sleep. (7 replies)
... They usully don't use "general anesthesia" but use a mixture of drugs to put you in a condition where you don't remember or care what goes on. This is for most people much better. Local anesthetic for bunion surgery can be uncomfortable because of several things. You can hear the bone cutting, which for most people is very disturbing. You also tend to be more fidgety. ...

... I am still undecided, I have extreme nausea with general and it takes me several hours to wake up, the last surgery I had, the surgery center sent me home so they could close and go home at the end of the day. I have never had anything done under local so I don't know what to expect there either. Any thoughts for those that have gone before me? (7 replies)
