Scared to death for foot surgery, support if you can.
I broke my foot last week. I believe it is lisfranc. There will be one probable fusion and two others that shoud not need it. I am going to the Foot and Ankle Institute in Baltimore. They seem rated so well, I am sure they are the best. I am terrified as the doctor told me it is going to be the worst pain ever and he guarantees I will be cursing his name. He said the pain would be excrutiating after the nerve block wears off, and the first few days will be severe pain. I have a low tolerance, and don't know how I am going to deal with this. Can someone who went through foot surgery please help me. I am on the verge of just cancelling, but I have a two year old! I don't want to be crippled forever with her. I am not in a lot of pain right now. Haven't tried to put weight on the foot. Pretty much just stuck with my foot elevated. Thanks for any help you can give me. I am really frightened and panicing.
