    Hey, I am having my accessory navicular bone removed. I am a 14 year girl, and I would like to hear your experiences and recovery as I am very nervous. What type of anethstesia, how large is your incision etc.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    I wanted to write and share my 13 (almost 14) year old son's story. He is a nationally ranked rock climber and very good baseball player, and he was experiencing a great deal of pain on and off for months (i.e. not being able to even walk). he finally tore some tendons playing football with his brother. we decided on surgery to not have on again and off again pain.

    the surgery was performed by an amazing doctor in charlotte (we drove 2 1/2 hours to the best doctor we could find, even though we live in an area with world renown medical care) on feb. 18. he was in a tremendous amount of pain after surgery and for about 1 week. we sent him in a wheel chair to school so he could keep his foot elevated, which was necessary to help the pain. the incision was about 2-3 and is barely noticeable now. he had both local and general anesthesia, with a block from his knee down. he had no problems with the anesthesia, but was super groggy and the block didn't mask the pain as well as they had hoped, but he was off the heavy pain pills after 2 days. he switched to ibuprofen.

    he was in a soft cast/splint for 10 days and then a hard cast for 3-4 weeks. he was in a boot for 2 weeks, which he was able to bare weight. he started pt around 2 months after surgery, but they said he was a fast healer. he is now released to begin activity, but he will start slowly and stick to a rigorous pt regiment. most of his pain now is in the muscles that atrophied.

    every experience is different, but a good doctor, ice and elevation, and follow instructions, and you should be better than new :)

    good luck with everything.
