Went for my pre op assessment today and saw yet another Dr, who basically seemed to say that the operation to fuse the bones in my foot will leave me in more pain with CRPS. That is now another opinion, I left feeling I did not have my questions answered, and don't really know where I stand (Literally)!
He couldn't tell me how long I would be in a cast, what type of cast, how long I would be non weight bearing etc etc. The only thing I know is I will only be in over night and discharged the next day.
He argued that I had not been told to be non weight bearing for 8 weeks following my previous foot surgery (would I lie about that??).
Feel really let down by a Dr I have known before to be a very helpful man. I am now frightened of the future and what it may hold, I was hoping the operation would relieve the pain and I could get back to my life. Not sure how to handle the thought that I may be in constant pain like this for the rest of my life! I am only 52, have got lots of plans for my future. I know there are many on here that are in the same situation, any advice would be appreciated.
