    Well I went to the college yesterday I'm taking the PE Class I made my teacher aware I had foot surgery about 2 months ago I told him my surgeon only wants me to do only arm stuff until I get out of the walk which is in 5 weeks. I'm also taking a learning skills class called LRS.

    Glad you are back at school, Kara. I hope your teacher accepts what the surgeon says.

    Good luck in all your classes this semester, Kara.

    hey everyone I'm 2 months postoperative from my foot surgery. I have a report I want to share. My mom and Me got to the hospital at 8:05. I checked in with the admissions lady at the outpatient surgery center. I signed the forms I needed to sign. My nurse told me I need to get some lab work done and tell the lady I'm back. We went to the to the outpatient lab to get my lab work done. I got 3 tubes of blood taken and urine test. Then we went back to the outpatient surgery center. Which was across the hall. I let the lady know that I was back. My nurse called me back. Me and my mom follower her to my room. I had two pre-op nurses. She said to take all my clothes off. I asked if I need to take off something which I don't want to say what it is. She said let them know when I was done. I put on my hospital gown. I put my clothes in to my hospital bag. Let them know I was ready. Had my vitals taken. I meet with my anesthesiologist, my OR nurse, the nurse that was helping my surgeon, and lastly my surgeon. After that they tried to get my IV line started. Finally they got it in the side of my right wrist. They put on a green leg compress on my good leg, washed my foot, took my vitals again. Then my Surgeon put his initials on my right foot it kind of tickled. After that my Anaesthesiologist and my OR Nurse came to take me to the OR. I feel a sleep with a mask. My surgery lasted for 1 1/2 hours. They covered my foot in a ace bandage with some gauze. I was in the PACU until my surgeon let me go home. I'm doing good not really hurting it just feels strange. It don't really bother me really anymore only when I'm on in for to long.Was in a wheel chair for 1.5 months. I can walk again I'm using a walker for 4 more weeks. I figured out I can start walking with out it on my birthday.

    Hey everyone sorry I haven't been active on here the past couple mouths. So any way here in California I advocate at the state level with the department of developmental services. Plus I was recently elected chairwoman for the consumer advisory committee for the department of department of developmental services. As for my back I irritated it helping my mother. And That flipping hurt.
