So sorry to hear of your awful experience. I sincerely hope you are without pain now.
Following the operation on my foot, I had surgery to my shoulder too. I had a frightening reaction to the nerve block used and temporarily lost the ability to swallow,cough,talk properly & the left side of my face dropped. It took so long to recover, they were on the verge of transferring me to another hospital for emergency treatment. Fortunately, this wasn't necessary and I eventually made a full recovery. This they thought was caused or prolonged by PD.
I saw my Parkinson's Disease nurse specialist today as the Orthopaedic surgeon told me that my problems post op on my foot are due to PD.My PD nurse believes otherwise and told me the issue is a problem with the surgery. Catch 22!
I keep coming up against "PD is a grey area". Would it help if the surgeons work more closely with the PD specialist nurses to help those suffering with PD post op. I believe that physio should definitely be offered
Be interested to know what you think.
