So.. the surgery for my ankle was moved up to last Thursday, May 9. Very fortunate to have it moved up. At the same token, I had to cram everything in the 1.5 weeks time after being notified.
Surgery went fine, and the easy part is now over. Recovery started when I woke up from the surgery. The nerve block lasted for about 36 hours, from time of administration. And learning to not use weight on this leg at all was far more difficult than I thought. This is a good reason why I try to stay away from the pain killers, without feeling it, I wouldn't know if I am using that leg at all. However, sleep will be a time that I will use pain killer to rest. During the day, I will take when necessary. Having feeling is quite important.
Just this morning I didn't think i was applying weight on it, but i felt the screws inside my ankle and it hurt!! Damn, I felt it all and the instant feeling is how weak that bone is at the moment.
My mother is just enduring this whole thing now, whom I thank for and appreciate her help. Despite her own fatigue and helplessness as she is still grieving at the loss of my father, she has been doing her best to help out. As no parent in the right mind would want to see their child going through a surgical procedure of any sort. Rest and allowing it to recover well and smooth is the only focus I need to have now. Get healthy again and keep it. This broken ankle has taken so much of me and people close to me. To those all who stood by me to help and support me, I thank you.
