Surgical complications

Filed under: personal — Tags: , , — dracil @ 1:18 am

Well that went way longer than I thought it would.  Surgery was supposed to be at 11:30, doctor did not see me till 12.  Operation “started” around 12:15 and I woke up around 1-2.  This was supposed to be a 15 minute procedure.

What annoys me is that one of the screws broke and he just left it in there because he didn’t want to go digging for it.  Uh, what?  The thought of a broken screw in my bone is pretting agitating for me.  It makes me wonder if the pain I was feeling last week was beause of this, because a couple weeks prior to that, there didn’t seem to be anything unusual in the X-rays, or I wonder if it broke during the surgery.  Either way, I’m rather unhappy about it, especially since I was told this information while I was still under a heavily anesthestized state and didn’t have the presence of mind to ask for more information, and I don’t get to see him till next week.  UGH.

I don’t mind if it’s only in there temporarily as long as it’s removed along with the rest of my hardware in the future, because I really don’t want to live the rest of my life with bits of metal in my foot unless it’s absolutely necessary.  But somehow, I don’t think that’s the case.  Seems like it would be even harder to find and remove later if the bone on the closer side is healed already.  I’m assuming it’s stuck in my tibula.

  1. If at all possible, you ought to get that bastard removed before it causes further complications.
