@jenniferhunter Cassidee also has a fixator Cage too. She also had 2 surgeries. Your's sounds worse. She can't put any weight on it for 6 to 8 weeks. Still waiting for insurance to ok rehab. If you feel nauseated after a surgery tell the anathesia (SP) doctor and he will put something in your IV that helps. They did a nerve block on Cassidee's first surgery, but not on her 2nd. The anesthesis (sp) thought they thought they should do one, but the surgeon didn't think so. She was in so much pain after the surgery, even the strongest med did not help. When I see that doctor again I'm going to comment to him not doing one.
