I feel he will do great.. I do know it's scarey when a youngster has things like this happen, however his age will help with a great outcome.
I hope you'll post back when time permits .. to update us on how he's doing.
Very glad to see him being able to manage the pain.
I did feel sad seeing him suffer from great pain for two full nights after plate removal surgery. Gladly the anesthesiologist very cooperative in giving him continuous Meperidine (Demerol) injection through syringe pump.
My son had suffered from great pain for almost 3 months after the internal fixation of those two metal plates with 12 screws in Dec 2011. He even took Morphine tablets for couple of months combined with ketoprofen.
After those two plates removal on last Friday, he only got the pain for 3 days, managed by Demerol. Just minor pain until today.
Happy to see him smiling, pacing around in the house, and doing things with his new tablet PC (newly bought as a surgery gift from me).
All I feel now is a big relief. Happy to watch him playing while hoping his surgical wound shall heal as expected.
