Post-Foot Surgery Complications
Hello, my name is Alex Lee. I had surgery on my foot on December 17, 2018(it is now January 11, 2019), involving general anesthesia. On my left-great toe, I had my EHL Tendon lengthened, along with an extra bone taken out, underneath my great-left toe. They put a pin through the top of my great-left toe down. Im in a cast with wrapping around the toe, and can not put any pressure whatsoever ever on the foot. About a week after surgery I have been getting very dizzy at times and my blood pressure bottoms out, and makes me feel like I’m going to pass out. I have fell many times due to the dizziness, and at times accidentally put pressure on that foot. A doctor diagnosed me with Syncope Episodes. When I get dizzy, then comes along with sweating and vomiting. I had one of the episodes at school and was escorted out of the classroom. I have had an EKG done, which had normal results, along with blood tests, that showed no infection. I am very confused, along with my doctors. Can someone please help. Thank you.
