the surgery that could have taken my life!
also the most intense surgery I’ve had to date, and unfortunately have had quite a few!! I’m just gonna get right to it with the bad. Oh before the bad, the surgery was to straighten and align my kneecap back into the correct position as well as fixing and repairing other things.. in order for them to correct everything they had to break my tibia and place a bone graph.. INTENSE!!!!! I’m assuming surgery was just about done but my ass WOKE UP while still on the table. Eyes wide open, bright bright surgical lights and a tube stuck down my throat. Thankfully a nurse or the anesthesiologist quickly noticed that I had woke and knocked my ass back out.. next thing I know I’m in recovery casted up, hip to ankle. feeling ok at the moment.. a couple hours pass and the pain starts getting super intense and my breathing started to get shallow, next thing you know I’m gasping for air ( my O2 stats where in the high 60’s) that’s baddddd.. if you’re in the ER or urgent care and your oxygen levels get under 90 they’ll put a mask on you. I WAS IN THE 60’s!!!!! come to find out someone over medicated me big time and my body wasn’t happy. Aside from me not being able to breath my leg started to swell up insanely fast so they had to remove the cast.
it was fucking crazy to say the least.. fast forward to now. My knee is beyond destroyed and now need a total knee replacement. It’s also so bad my other knee needs surgery as well just from favoring after 6 knee surgeries which all started from a freak accident during softball practice my freshman year.
I’m trying my best to say off of the surgery table but pain is kind of starting to get a bit out of control and the lupus does not help at all it only intensifies the pain!!!! and torn ligaments, tendons and muscles can not sow themselves back together. Eating right, taking cbd/ thc and so on helps but only so much because like I said body parts can’t sow themselves back together.. all of this blabbing to say cannabis is amazing and can help tremendously.. I wish I consumed cannabis earlier after a surgery but oh well.. now I know - 2 minutes ago
