AT fixed intranasally?

October 1st, 2008

So has anyone else had their achilles tendon repaired via their nose?  I’m wondering if my surgeon is piloting a new technique because I can’t figure out why else I came out of surgery on Monday with two black eyes and a fat lip.  Did I flirt with the doctor?   (she’s not my type but you never know with the anesthesia….) or did I get cheeky with the OR nurse when she was scribbling on my ankle (maybe it was just confirmation of the right ankle and not her grocery list…)  Did anyone else have this experience?  I know that they did the surgery in the prone position, but I can’t imagine that just lying intubated on my face would do this kind of damage….

    I came out with a fat lip on one side and forgot to ask what was up with that. But 2 black eyes? What’d they do,drop you? Yikes. Hope your leg is feeling better!

    the intubation tube sits on one side of the mouth if you got general anesthesia

    Yes. This is very common in college. Usually after a long Thursday night…or any night for the matter. Let me shoot straight from the hip…you look great!
