My Aching Foot

A week after my Brychametatarsia surgery I had a doc appointment. It was quick and the doc informed me that I will be turning my external fixator myself. This contraption is drilled into your foot and toe in order to internally correct the bone. 

The minute meds wear off on me i begin to feel tightness in my foot and throbbing. Theres a pinching sensation and sometimes a burning feeling. Needless to say, I take my meds and elevate my foot consistently.

Turning the fixator doesn’t hurt, tho I do feel some tightness afterwards. I suggest taking a pill 30 min before doing this. Also, with taking the pills remember to eat beforehand, to avoid nausea. I learned this the hard way as nausea became my #1 emotion the first couple days after surgery. 

It wasnt completely my fault because the appetite is really dramatically reduced after a surgery. So, after picking through dinner a couple nights my family started forcing me to sleep when i didnt feel good and drink tea. If I did feel hungry or was in desperate pain then they would give me the drugs. But I do believe it may just had been the fact that my body cant take Codeine. The doc prescribed me Codeine and I had all the side effects: nausea, irritability, dizziness, lack of concentration, depression, euphoria, heart palpitations, sweating, and dropping asleep in the middle of everything.

After complaining at my doc visit he said hed send me something else. Ill let you know how i manage with this new one. Today is day 8 and I woke up in no pain which is a great improvement. I turn the external fixator every 6 hours and I turn it COUNTERCLOCKWISE. From 12 o clock to 9 o clock.

My whole day revolves around turning that thing. I wake up, eat some plain potato chips and have a glass of water. Then I take the pill and use the bathroom. When back inside I prepare my bed and everything for my entertainment. Lastly, I turn that damn screw.
The pain is easing off these days so Im real hopeful. Thanxx for reading.

Hidden Dangers

splenda I watched a Youtube video on Splenda, today. And the issue was presented as if there is a conspiracy behind the marketing tactics used by the brand.

When we get into them trying to deceive the general public we realize that they have been lying or at the very least been inaccurate on their labels. Splenda has 4 calories per teaspoon, contains Chloride, and causes Migranes. If those things were printed on the labels no one would buy it. Why would anyone want to expose their bodies to toxins that can actually cause them harm?

Dr. Mercola, I heed your warning clearly

The Food industry they dont give a shit about me

They push products that have Chlorine and MaltoDextrin

With what I know now I’ll throw Splenda in the damn bin

They’ve made a concoction, of which to taste like sugar

I know Chlorine is in some foods but its not organic in nature

Now this stuff is oh, so sweet and they tell Diabetics its safe

But they’re drinking bulking agents and more sugar, in this case

Splenda lies about their Calorie Count and that is just sad

So Im eating 1 gram of sugar with 4 Calories and now I m mad

But Splenda will give me a headache, after years so I see

So I’ll just take this DDT and Agent Orange out my Tea
