My mom has surgery on Friday!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My mom, who is 44 and has a bunion on her right foot, was told by her doctor that she wouldn't have surgery for at least a year. She also needs surgery on her right knee, but we don't know when that will be.

We got a phone call today and there was a cancellation at the hospital, so my mom has (bunion removal) surgery in two days! She doesn't want to be put under, so she's a little freaked out. So am I! So if we could have some vibes for a good surgery and recovery, that would be great!

Sending many vibes for your mom

Bunions run in my family and I think I will have to get one removed when I am older..I think I have the beginnings of one.

I had foot surgery when I was 40 yrs young and it went ok-the recovery was tough but I had it in the winter-this time of year is a better time for that kind of surgery.

Hoping it goes well.

Has she ever been under general anesthesia before? If so, it would be good if she could give the records of that procedure to this surgeon -- the information on what was used and how she responded might be helpful. Hope it all goes well!

Mom had surgery at 1:45 today. One of my brothers, my dad and I went to visit her this evening. She was awake, a little light headed and woozy. The cast on her foot just looks like a slipper without a heel--no wires or screws that I can see. She called me about ten minutes ago and her blood pressure is low so the nurses are keeping an eye on it. Thanks for the vibes!

Glad to hear it went well. Lots of speedy healing on their way!
