Toe Surgery

July 12th, 2018 at 02:54 pm

I had my toe surgery yesterday. It went well. I had a $50 co-pay, and then I will likely get billed for the rest since my deductible started over on the first with the new insurance. There is enough money already in the Medical Fund to pay for it.

It seems to have thrown me for a loop, though. I think it is my body trying to rid itself of the anesthesia, which takes longer when you have an auto-immune disease. I ended up getting in bed last night around six because it was the easiest way to keep my foot elevated and have an ice pack on it. Also, I was just drained. I snuggled up with season 10 of The Big Bang Theory, which I will finish watching today.

Today I still feel pretty out of it. I got out of bed to let the animals out and then went back to it and just listened to Ben Shapiro and Dave Ramsey and Hellfreezer (he tells scary stories) until about 1 p.m. when I decided I should feed myself. I hope this wears off. I have stuff to do, but probably won't get anything done until tomorrow.

I can walk okay on the toe, I'm not sure I want to do much, though. Tomorrow is payday so I will need to go grocery shopping, unless I decide to put it off until Saturday. DS goes with me, though, so maybe I can get a ride on cart to use.

    Just don't try to do too much too soon - we've all done that and know what happens....we end up not doing ANYTHING for a lot longer than if we had rested to begin with!!! Unless your freezers and pantry are completely empty and filled with cobwebs (which I SERIOUSLY doubt, lolz), wait until you feel better to do anything!! That anesthesia fog could make you buy things like Twinkies, candy, and other goodies and you wouldn't even realize it Smile

    LOL, I don't buy that kind of junk food. I can bake far better than anything I can get at a store for far cheaper. So can my kids, so if I get a craving for bad foods I will make one of them make me cake pop doughnuts. It was local anesthesia so it doesn't really bring a brain fog so much as it just seems to make me very tired. I can hold off if I don't feel up to it tomorrow.
