Ingrown Toenail Post Surgery - Articles

The post-op post by Martin Patient Expert Posted Wed 03 Jun 2009 12:22am Morphine hits the backs of the legs first, then the back of the neck, a spreading wave of relaxation slackening the muscles away from the bones so that you seem to float without outlines, like lying in warm salt water. As this relaxing wave spread through my tissues, I experienced a strong feeling of fear. I had the feeling that some horrible i ... Read on »
Doc in the Box on the removing of toenails by Sean D. Healthy Living Professional Posted Fri 17 Oct 2008 9:14pm I am a corpsman but don't really blog about medicine that much, so here’s a medical post. The most common medical problem that requires minor surgery while deployed with my Marines seems to be ingrown toenails (I don't know if that's true for others but it is for me) and here’s a video I made of me in action taking out part of a toenail (yes, I sc ...

Frontalis Sling Surgery - 24 Hours Post Surgery by Susan Patient Expert Posted Sat 16 Jun 2012 9:45pm We had a crummy night's sleep. Or at least I did. Steve slept on the couch so Ainsley could sleep in our bed. She has to sleep with her head elevated for the first 2 nights. Her crib doesn't have enough space to do that. Besides she needs care in the middle of the night, especially post-surgery. I think I must have suctioned 30 times last night. ... Read on »
Frontalis Sling Surgery - 72 Hours Post Surgery by Susan Patient Expert Posted Mon 18 Jun 2012 3:06pm Ainsley 72 hours post-surgery. There is still a fair amount of swelling. Her lids are thick. That makes it difficult to judge the outcome of the surgery. My gut is telling me that her resting position isn't going to be as high as the surgeon thought. He said they would be about where they are at in the picture below, when she was 9 months old ... Read on »

The Mandatory Post-Surgery Cheesy "YAY, I'm recovering!" Post by Ulyana C. Healthy Living Professional Posted Sun 12 Sep 2010 12:19pm It's been three weeks since I've had my surgery. I'm recovering well. The swelling is gone. My range of motion is almost back where it was before the surgery. Just three more weeks, and I'll be allowed to put weight on my leg. Oh, goodness, I just can't wait until the moment I can get rid of my crutches. I think I'll put them in the middle ... Read on »
