Thank God everything went okay on the first of two surgeries on my ankle. I was in th e hospital for a wide range of tests before the surgery, partly due to past medical problems. The next surgery is in 10-12 weeks, so i will be off lifting for a very long time.
All i can say is, ankle surgery is VERY painfull. I was given two shots in the hospital and nothing help aleviate (sp) the pain. I could not sleep, I am in my bed because I cant move. The pain killer I am taking only gets me dizze, the pain is horrible....
I guess I have to take it one day at a time, and try to stay focused.

That's rough man. Good luck and I hope everything turns out well. Get better and back in the gym soon.

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.
I just had complete knee reconstruction in November. The road back is long, but worth it. I am able to jog now and light squats.
lol thats how all surgerys are man ive had several they do suck but only hurt as bad as you let them plus you get da ladies !!
I am AMINAL
What painkiller did they give you? You can ask for a different drug or a stronger dosage, probably. Of course, I'd never advocate buying black market painkillers, but some people have been known to do that...
LOL thanks for the support guys. But I dont think i will be getting the ladies for a while, since i cant even get out of bed.
While In the Hospital they gave me some strong shots, dont know the name however. I was given VICOPROFEN 7.5MG/200MG tablets to take every 4 hours, but all it does is put me to sleep.
I am wondering how should I keep my diet?
Yeah, I remember the post surgery blues after I got my torn pec repaired. They put me on Hydrocodine(sp?), but I didn't like the way that knocked me out, so I just used regular aspirin. Not as effective, but at least I was still alert.
As for my diet, to be honest, i was more focused on my recovery than worrying about what I ate. Anyway, try not to dwell on it too long, that only prolongs the misery. I thought I'd never be able to lift again, but now, almost a year later, I'm actually stronger (and smarter) than I was before the injury.

pinch the nurses in the ass, read flex for motivation and eat as much as you can, you can do this! Go Beastin!
A big thanks to all my friends in the USA, I am deeply grateful for your hospitality and kindness.
Vicoprofen is crap.
Ask for the Percocet 7.5/500
If they don't give it to you, shoot them with whatever firearm you have available.

Percodan or Tylox (anything with oxycodone in it, as opposed to hydrocodone) would help alleviate the pain more effectively, as they are stronger.
