And boy do I need you now! just back online today. Have had a amiserable week. My operation went well, but the care was another story. (long one of neglect) It is just that I have felt so low since I got home, tearful and moody. Not too much pain thankfully, but really depressed and anxious that maybe it wont work, the bones won't fuse I'll get an infection, flare all sorts of negativity. My mind is working non stop on a course of all things gloomy. ( on anti dep anyway so don't suggest that!
Anyway, I rang my GP today and she prescribed some xanax and sleepers & codeine for a week or so and said it wasperfectly normal to be mood swinging a bit after morphine etc etc, and offered to come to my house if I wanted her too.
Please someone tell me this operation is worth it, my sister in law kindly told me a few days before the op that her dad had the same and ended up with ankle replacement as it was a total failure.
I spoke to Ailsa and she gave me great support, prior to operation.
Please just tell me this will get better, today is my first day downstairs and I had to be forced out of bed. Its a week tomorrow since the operation.
Please give me hope whats wrong with me. post op.
Worried & anxious & tearful
