Anxious and Terrified After Surgical Complication

Hello @klro0001, Welcome to Connect. The symptoms you describe can be scary and when you throw in the unknown aspects of what is causing the symptoms I can understand how you feel. The one thing I can share with you is that you are not alone here. There are others who have experienced similar symptoms and hopefully will be able to share their experience with you.

I had a total knee replacement in April and I was a little quesy talking with the anesthesiologist who went over the nerve block procedure with me for the knee replacement surgery and explained all of the risks. I had some pain after the nerve block wore off but the pain pills helped with that for the first few days after the surgery. Since you have an appointment with your neurologist on Monday it might be helpful to write down all of your symptoms and prioritize them so that you can discuss them with the neurologist to discuss treatment strategies and possible options.

Do you know what type of nerve block and regional anesthesia you had? Was it just the one leg/foot that had the nerve block?

Thank you for responding and for the welcome. I don’t remember the name of the nerve block but I know that it was behind my left knee. Numbed my entire leg and foot.

Also, I’ve been keeping a daily symptom journal for the past couple of weeks so that I will remember everything.
