Here’s a pic of the big cast that the doctor put on me post op. I’m hoping I can get this thing off in the next 2 weeks. It wouldn’t be fun lugging this thing around the city. It’s not one of those typical plaster casts, but rather a splint with ace bandages wrapped around it. It seems like this would be more comfortable than a hard cast. Staying home from work for the next 2 weeks, but I feel lucky because I don’t really have any pain. Probably a 3 on the pain scale.
My cocktail menu for the next few days:
4 advil every 4 hours
1 injection of Lovenox in my stomach every day (to prevent clots in my blood stream)
1-2 percocets every 4 hours as needed
1 Lyrica every day
