I hope you have some help preparing for Hurricane Dorian, and that you are in a safe home, or able to get to a shelter. I had my own version of reconstruction in January, with bunion and hammertoe surgery and my foot now has titanium and some long scars. I would not have wanted the added stress of an imminent Category 5 hurricane!
Like you, I asked for a popliteal block, which worked fine, and I found that my brain did also, especially after it stopped receiving so many pain signals. Since this is your second such surgery, you have probably already learned the lesson my PT gave me: Be a patient patient! I also learned that the PT was my best source for tips, exercises and encouragement on how well I was doing, once I could start working with her.
Hugs to you and everyone affected by Dorian! Let us know how you've fared once this is over--and you have power again.
