Day after bunion surgery


I’m doing much better today after a rough evening and night post surgery. Getting an anti-nausea patch was key. Stretching the time between each dose of painkiller and Ibuprofen with goal of reducing the opioid painkiller as quickly as possible. Expecting each day to be better.

Rented knee walker is a great tool! Also learning I was negative for Covid. They said some surgeries have been canceled due to positive tests though.

Was able to eat breakfast thanks to anti-nausea patch. Even a little coffee. Yeah!

Hubby being a terrific caretaker but dog rather confused at my inability to cuddle or walk her.

Hope all is well with all of you.

  2. Yes they but when they wear off right now it is agonizing. First 3 to 4 days supposed to be the worst.

  3. So glad to hear from you here and on Facebook. That's quite the bandage. Thankful you have pain meds on board and something for the nausea. Maybe by tomorrow, you can very carefully show the pup a little love.
