... Nerve pain often occurs with these surgeries, though not everyone has it. I had it and still have it. I still take Neurontin.

... Being nwb and having to keep my foot elevated and sitting reclined for the last 8 weeks has been the worse part of the recovery. My husband waits on me hand and foot (no pun intended).

... er out and then wast my foot. It's easier for me that way. I am trying to do more of the heel walking but find that is really slow going.

... s pretty much constantly, and I get a sharp pain now and again, for the most part, for me, it is more of a "nuisance" than anything painful. I've had a couple of times where it hurt badly but nothing major. I'm back to work and keep it elevated most of the day. ... (0 replies)
... I have not had the procedure you are having, but I have had general anesthesia 2 times. I was also very nervous the first time, but when I woke up in recovery, I felt silly for being so worried. Anesthesia is such an odd feeling. You are about to have surgery and then you wake up and it feels like no time has passed at all. The first thing I said when I woke up was "what... (12 replies)
