Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.



Yeah, tomorrow I go under the knife for my Topaz procedure to cure/treat my plantar fasciitis in my left foot. I had this done in my right foot almost four years ago and have been pain free ever since.

Causes of plantar faciitis, according to the Mayo Clinic:
Active in sports - I was a competitive athlete for years, only having given up most of that once I had kids. I was still playing softball even after Little Bit was born five years ago and with coaching, you have to be a little physical
Flat-footed - I have always been flat-footed (and slow).
Middle-aged or older - oh yuck.
Overweight - guilty as charged.


Of course, now I'm getting nervous and anxious and all that. I always do. I hate anesthesia because I have issues with it. I'm either puking for a day afterward or there are complications with administering my anesthesia. In January for my ablation, the anesthesia guy didn't get the IV into a vein and was just pumping stuff into my arm. Nice. *sighing again* So, I may go take some anti-anxiety meds the doc gave me before the last operation (they didn't work then, but why not try?)

Oh yeah, you're wondering why the title of this post is SAW? That is my surgeon's initials. He outlines his work and then initials it with SAW. Sick bastard. I really hope it isn't instructions. :)

    wonderful fun :-(

    at least with success on the first foot, your more likely to see a similar outcome with the second.

    Best of luck.

    LOL about his initials!

    I've had horrible experiences with anesthesia. Is there any chance you can speak to the ansthesiologist before hand? I've found they can often give me something to prevent it.
