My left foot

Postby rufustfirefly » Thu Oct 13, 2016 3:46 am

Hello SMRT people. I haven't been awhile. Spent the last two months trying to save my foot. We failed. Amputation tomorrow morning. So I'll be changing my user name to Peg Leg :D I'll have before and after pics later. Well, I know you'll all be praying for me, so take care, friends.

Oh blimey, that's not good! <-- understatement of the year.

Take care, Rufus, and I hope your doctors are masterful and recovery is quick and pain free.

Bloody hell, rufus. I knew you'd been poorly for a bit now, but bloody hell! All I can do is send you my best wishes and hopes for the future that whatever happens is a lot better than you expect it to be.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?Then he is not omnipotent.Is he able, but not willing?Then he is malevolent.Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? (Epicurus circa:300 BC)

Take your pain meds on time, don't play mr. tough guy and try to skip dosages. Opiates suck big time, Ultracet worked well for me and is easy on the kidneys. Also Lidocaine pain patches were very helpful to reduce nerve pain during healing.

Get rechecked asap if you have increasing pain, redness, swelling, discharge, fever - infections are a bitch to keep under control if they get a hold. Holler for an infectious disease doctor to be part of your health care team.

Use a walking frame instead of crutches to get around, much easier to handle and supports you so much better esp. as you're healing.

Good luck, take care.
